This recipe makes one cocktail, which I recommend trying first before committing to a full batch—the flavor profile of absinthe is not for everybody.

Easy

Absinthe Eggnog

Ingredients

For 1 Person(s)

Recipe

  • 1 1/2 ounces Tenneyson Absinthe Royale (clear Swiss-style absinthe)
  • 1 1/2 ounces heavy cream
  • 3/4 ounces simple syrup
  • 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 egg

Absinthe Eggnog Directions

  1. Combine all ingredients in a shaker and shake for a moment without ice (alternately, use a handheld milk frother to emulsify the ingredients).
  2. Add ice and shake vigorously to chill. For a larger batch, multiply all ingredients except the simple syrup and vanilla.
  3. After whipping the other ingredients in a mixing bowl, add simple syrup and vanilla to taste.
