Absinthe, American Style
A syrup made from dissolving granulated sugar (sucrose) in water. Regular simple is made by combining 1:1 sugar:water by mass, rich simple is 2:1 sugar:water by mass although only 1.5 times as sweet as regular. We always use 1:1 syrup unless otherwise noted in the recipe itself.
You know what this is, dihydrogen monoxide. Used in cocktails to aide dilution and dissolution. It is liquid at room temperature but becomes solid 'ice' at 0 Celsius. Did you know ice is a mineral?
A distilled, highly alcoholic (45-75% ABV), anise-flavored beverage derived from botanicals like wormwood, green anise, fennel, hyssop, melissa and other herbs. Technically a spirit, as it is not bottled with sugar. The green fairy.
Add all ingredients to a mixing glass. Fill with ice and stir until chilled. Strain into a cocktail glass. #stir #straight
