To Celebrate 10 years of Green Fairy Absinthe in Australia, Southtrade throws a cocktail tasting and its a dozy. Cocktails with Absinth in them and then a full tasting of the range. Its an interesting product with a sweeping flavour range that changes as you add water – going from bitter to sweet, spicy, mellow and all with that signature aniseed , licorice wormwood notes.
The cocktail there is a Green Beast, Green Fairy Original + Superieur, lemonjuice, elderflower cordial, cucumber and lemon. Its made “punch style” and an easy party option.
The tasting session for these was quite interesting as the Absinthe Range had different flavour profiles that changed as you added chilled water to them. It was also interesting to note how the absinth went cloudy as water was added. The explaination is quite “sciency” and covered in this nice post on seriouseats.com “why does absinth go cloudy”
