Loved it!!! I usually drink absinthe with a sugar cube and ice water - It was great with champagne!! My two loves combined... It is perkier, if that is a word and the champagne smooths the absinthe. I am in heaven! And way easier to put together then dragging out the fountain and spoons!! I will use this recipe a lot! Thanks for sharing Hemingway's recipe! A toast to you on your day!
