Absinthe Suissesse

Absinthe is a strong herbal liqueur distilled with many flavorful herbs, including anise, licorice, hyssop, veronica, fennel, lemon balm, angelica, and wormwood. This dazzling green liqueur was the signature drink of famous artists, writers, and poets. Here it combines with egg whites and floral ingredients for a delicate looking drink that’s an acquired taste.

The French are quite specific as to the time to imbibe absinthe. They have referred to it as l’heure vert, “the green hour.” When exactly this is, however, has never been made clear. Donning a beret and discussing existentialism at an outdoor café under a setting summer sun would provide a very absinthe moment.
