Absinthe Sour

 

1½ oz Wild Card Absinthe
3⁄4 oz Simple Syrup
Juice from 1⁄2 a lemon
3⁄4 oz Egg White

A salute to National Absinthe Day, here is a recipe for the traditional Absinthe Sour using Wild Card Absinthe. A Double Gold Medal Award and Best of Category went to Wild Card in 2014 at the International Spirit Competition in San Francisco. This cocktail is well-rounded with distinct presence of absinthe producing delicate notes of fennel, star anise and wormwood.

To make the Absinthe Sour, fill cocktail shaker with ice, add all ingredients and shake vigorously. Shake very hard to get the ingredients to emulsify and form a layer of foam on top of the cocktail. Garnish with Lemon Twist.
