A simple blend of bourbon, absinthe and bitters is topped with soda water to create this light and flavorful mixed drink.

  • 1/4 ounces absinthe
  • 4 dashes bitters
  • 1 splash soda water
  • Lemon wedge to garnish


  1. Place the absinthe into a tall cocktail glass and swirl the spirit in the glass so that it coats the inside. Pour out any remaining absinthe.
  2. Add the bourbon and the bitters to the glass and then squeeze in the lemon from the wedge and drop into to the glass.
  3. Fill the glass three-quarters full with ice and then slowly stir the mixture for 25 seconds to combine.
