Mai Tai Suissesse

About this Cocktail

My mashup of the Tiki classic, the Mai Tai, with the New Orleans treat, the Absinthe Suissesse; it made the cut for the 2018 USBG Cocktail Classique competition sponsored by Lucid Absinthe. It was inspired by how Tiki is so receptive to absinthe (albeit with a lighter touch) and I substituted one of the rums in a Mai Tai for the Suissese...

  • 1 oz Absinthe
  • 1 oz Rhum Agricole Blanc
  • 1 oz Lime Juice
  • 1 oz Orgeat
  • 1/2 oz Orange Liqueur (Curaçao or Triple Sec)
  • 1 oz Heavy Cream
  • 1 Egg White

Shake once without ice and once with ice; strain into a Tiki mug filled with crushed ice. I originally intended to garnish with freshly grated nutmeg but I was limited to 7 ingredients -- feel free to add!
