About this Cocktail

From the menu at Peché in Austin. I never knew the proportions so I had to go with my gut.

  • 1.5 oz. Absinthe (Kubler)
  • .75 oz. Orgeat (see below)
  • .75 oz. Lemon Juice
  • 1 Egg White

Dry/wet shake with ice and double-strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with Angostura and Peychaud's.

2 Cups Water
2 Cups Turbinado or Demerara Sugar
1 Cup Blanched Almonds
1 oz. VS Brandy
.5 tsp. Almond Extract
10 drops Orange Flower Water
Heat water and sugar to dissolve. Pulverize almonds to a varied texture. Add almonds to syrup. Simmer for 15 minutes. Refrigerate mixture overnight. Pull out solids and add remaining ingredients. Tea Strain into bottles.

    The proportions make for a well-balanced cocktail. I used Germain-Robin absinthe (amazing domestic brand) and Small Hand Foods orgeat... frothed the foam top with a tad bit of Bittermens Burlesque bitters + Scrappy's Lavender bitters, and yum!
