Sometimes I ramble.
Sometimes I make cocktails.
Most of the time I just take pictures and think that's cool enough.

Devil In Disguise.


devil in disguise.

Absinthe has quite the vocal chords when it comes to cocktails–and when it sings, it has a twist of intrigue and danger. Often we find ourselves curious with this spirit, especially with it’s unique history of being banned for it’s (said-to-be) addictive hallucinogenic backlash in the early 1900s, and then rising from the dead in the early 2000s. It only seems right to toy with this daring liquid on a day like Halloween. And as we escape under various masks and venture out into the unknown, be sure to remember that not everything is as they appear, just as you may be. This concoction of sloe gin, absinthe, lime and bubbles has a sweetness and animation to it that captures the liveliness of Halloween. With that anise flavor to draw you and also leave a somewhat spooky linger, this drink has a few surprising tricks up it’s sleeve. 

Let’s concoct:

  • 2 oz Spirit Works Sloe Gin

  • 0.25 oz Absinthe 

  • 0.5 oz Lime Juice

  • Club Soda

*Add all ingredients (excluding the club soda) into a mixing glass and shake vigorously with ice. Strain into a chilled coupe glass and top with champagne. Garnish with star anise.
