...yep, I've remembered. finally. to share the cocktail that Thea posted when she debuted that squirrel pattern last week.
I did make it last Thursday night. I remember thinking it didn't taste much like scotch at all. but I did taste licorice. Fast forward to today and Wednesday knitting with my sister. She was surprised to see scotch...and absinthe. We enjoyed the cocktail, but agreed we'd like to try it with bourbon and no absinthe. (hummmm... not a strong recommendation!)
I think that means we both prefer a nice bottle of red wine :-) Nonetheless - cheers!
And in case you're still interested - here's the recipe:
1 oz. scotch
1/2 oz. dry curaçao
1/2 oz. absinthe
combine with ice in a shaker and serve while it's frothy and cold. (I added one of the cubes from the shaker and it was a welcome addition to keep the drink really cold.)
