Absinthe cocktails are often potent in flavor thanks to the spirit's rich liquorice-like aroma that can often be too decadent for many to enjoy. However this recipe from San Francisco eatery Oro offers a light take on the cocktail using refreshing ingredients such as cucumber and lemon to cut through the pungent taste of the absinthe.
Oro's cocktail, known as the Absinthe Frappe, offers a shaken beverage that perfectly balances the herby taste of the liquor. The cocktail calls for a high-quality absinthe topped with thinly sliced cucumber wedges, lemon juice and simple syrup. The cocktail is well-shaken so that the lemon and cucumber's flavors can cut through the absinthe's robust aroma and make it much more light and enjoyable on the palette.
