Maybe it's my recent obsession with the tv show True Blood... but this cocktail sounds delightful!
Death in the P.M.
By Aida Mollenkamp
The first version of this cocktail is attributed to Ernest Hemingway and is named after his novel Death in the Afternoon. The libation is an odd combination of absinthe and sparkling wine, and we feel that Hemingway’s suggested proportions were a bit too much (roughly 1 part absinthe to 4 parts champagne), so we adjusted them to our liking. And, now that absinthe is legal again, you can try this with the real thing.INGREDIENTSINSTRUCTIONS
