Arsenic And Gin Old Lace Cocktail Recipe

We are now officially in spring, and if that isn’t enough to raise your spirits then this delicious cocktail quite literally will. Easy to make it gives a bright punch of flavour whilst offering a perfect balance of bitter and sweet.

The sun is putting in a more regular appearance, the nights are getting longer, and the flowers are coming through.  And if you are one of the people for that spring always makes them want to drink floral cocktails with delicate flavors and flower garnishes then this is for you.

This cocktail is quite delicious when made with Pernod Absinthe, but it goes to the next level when made with an Absinthe such as Vom Fass 72% Green Absinthe made with Star Anise, Fennel, Coriander, and Licorice Root.  This Absinthe makes the cocktail opalescent - a mesmerising introduction into spring.

Now we think we have picked out the best recipe there is, but if you Google Arsenic & Old Lace recipe the varying amounts of ingredients used is truly staggering, so feel free to experiment.
