Christmas is nearly upon us, and if you’re drinking like we are, you likely still have a half full bottle of Douglas Fir Eau De Vie to help you get in the Christmas spirit.
1 ounce Douglas fir eau de vie 1/2 ounce absinthe (or pastis) 1/2 ounce gin 1 ounce pasteurized egg whites 1 teaspoon simple syrup
Its a nice looking cocktail with one difficult ingredient: the pasteurized eggs. I didn’t have any on hand, and as I tend to not make cocktails with eggs when I mix at home. So I left out the egg.
Okay, tastes lot like absinthe. Faint hints of pine in the background, the gin isn’t doing much here- even with Oxley being pretty strong. This cocktail may need a non-herbal partner. The egg froth will definitely make it feel thicker, but not sure it will do a lot over the fact that even in the 2:1:1 ratio, this christmas cocktail is for the absinthe lover in your family.
