Absinthe Cocktail Recipes

National Absinthe Day

Happy National Absinthe Day!


When I first started making it in 1997, I never expected the absinthe prohibition to be repealed, as it was on March 5, 2007. We’ve learned so much about it since those days, such as:
• Absinthe is not hallucinogenic. Never has been!
• It isn’t why Van Gogh cut off his ear.
• Absinthe need not be bitter and gross.
• Absinthe can be delicious and organic!
• The ingredients can and should be fresh and herbal!

Absinthe is super versatile and can be enjoyed with a little cold water or in a glass of champagne, root beer, a sazerac, and any number of cocktails!

Enjoy some absinthe today! My collection includes over 100 recipes!  Make something yummy and send me the recipe and a picture and I will add it to the collection and share it on my Absinthe Cocktail Thursdays on Instagram and Facebook! ????‍♀️????

Below is a list of retail shops, bars, hotels and restaurants where Absinthia Organic Absinthe can be enjoyed. Please email us if you are interested in scheduling a tasting meeting, ordering, or booking Absinthia for an event. 

Did you know?

Normally restricted to accredited investors, the 2012 Jobs Act in the United States allows for a greater scope of investors to invest via crowdfunding. Investment crowdfunding is a way to source money for a company by asking a large number of backers to each invest a relatively small amount in it. In return, backers receive equity, debt, or revenue shares of the company. 

Of course, it is not only National Absinthe Day, it is also Fat Tuesday! Enjoy a Sazerac, The Official Drink of New Orleans.

2 oz rye whiskey
Sugar cube
2 dashes Peychaud’s bitters
Dash Absinthia Absinthe Superieure
Lemon twist for garnish

Prepare an old-fashioned glass by filling it with ice and dashing Absinthe over the top. In a separate mixing glass, muddle the sugar cube and Peychaud bitters together until the sugar is dissolved. You may add a drop of water to help this process along, but be conservative. Add the rye whiskey and ice to the bitters mixture and stir for 20 seconds until cold.
Spin the glass to coat with absinthe and discard the ice.
Strain the whiskey mixture from the mixing glass into the old fashioned glass.
Express the oils from the lemon twist over the glass, and wipe the rim of the glass with the peel yellow side of the peel. You may discard the lemon peel if you wish, or add it to the glass as garnish.
