Absinthe Flip

I really only ever utilize my bottle of Absinthe for rinsing my glass when making Corpse Revivers, but it’s time to change that. I used to hate anything liquorice-flavoured when I was younger, but now I really enjoy the anise-flavour of Absinthe and Pastis – isn’t it funny how our tastebuds change as we get older?

Absinthe Flip

A whole egg makes this drink – and all other flips – super rich. Perfect for enjoying after dinner in place of dessert. The Absinthe shines through though, but not in an overpowering way.
