Don't get us wrong, we love a good mint julep, especially for Derby Day. After a couple, though, you may want to switch it up a bit. We rely on the green fairy for something a little different. one-trick-pony

The One Trick Pony

  • 2 oz absinthe
  • 1 oz falernum
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup (1 part water: 1 part sugar)
  • 1 egg white

In a cocktail shaker with plenty of ice add your ingredients and shake it like the race depends on it for about 15-20 seconds to froth the egg well for a creamier drink.

Strain into a chilled coupe glass and serve neat.
