Cocktail of the Week: Heather’s Kiss

Heather’s Kiss
2.25 oz Famous Grouse Whisky
0.5 oz fresh squeezed lemon juice
0.25 oz organic agave syrup
1 tsp Pernod Absinthe

Shake all with ice, and strain into a cocktail glass.  Garnish with an Empire apple slice.

Cocktail created by Blair Frodelius, Good Spirits News

Creator’s Notes: Believe it or not, I was inspired by the classic Hot Toddy, which is a winter-time necessity in our household. Now that Absinthe is once again available in the U.S., I was eager to pair a sweet heathery Scotch with the dark herbal notes of an absinthe. I think this cocktail is greater than the sum of its parts.  I used an Empire apple as the garnish. You don’t want anything too sweet or too tart here. The garnish can be eaten in between sips.
