Absinthe Suissesse

from The Craft of the Cocktail

  • 1 ounce Absinthe
  • .25 ounce Anisette
  • .5 ounce Green Crème De Menthe
  • 1 ounce Egg White
  • dash Orange Flower Water

Shake all ingredients very well, making sure to completely emulsify the egg white. Strain into a Marie Antoinette-style champagne glass or Cuban daiquiri glass.

Drinks shaken with egg form a great-looking layer of foam on top and don't usually need a garnish, with the exception of a dusting of grated nutmeg or powdered cinnamon. But the flavor of this drink would be greatly enhanced with a little orange peel grated over the top.
