Funeral on 77th Street

This cocktail meets two classics, the French 77 and the Death in the Afternoon, right in the middle to create an herbaceous sparkler perfect for beginner and experienced absinthe drinkers alike!

This absinthe and elderflower French 75 riff is perfect for when you want something a little sweet, a little sour, and a little more adventurous than your average cocktail. A perfect introduction to absinthe for newbies, this cocktail is best served with ice cold sparkling wine and a fresh rosemary garnish.

1 3/4 oz Gin

1 1/4 oz Lemon

3/4 oz Honey Syrup (4:1 honey to water)

1/4 oz St. Germain Elderflower

1/4 oz Absinthe

Lemon peel

Cold Prosecco or Cava

  1. Combine gin, lemon, honey, St. germain, and absinthe into a cocktail shaker with ice.
  2. Shake well until frothy, about 30-45 seconds.
  3. Double strain into a large coupe glass. Top with desired amount of Prosecco or cava.
  4. Express a lemon peel over the surface of the cocktail and garnish with a sprig of fresh rosemary.

NOTE: For a Slightly sweeter drink, increase measurement of St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur from 1/4 oz to 1/2 oz.
