Recipe by Amanda in Aberdeen

Legend has it this coctail was first served in a Glaswegian pub. It was inspired by references to Absinthe in "Dracula" and "Moulin Rouge". My husband enjoys a whiskey so I was pleased that he enjoyed this cocktail.

  • 2 fluid ounces absinthe
  • 2 fluid ounces lemon juice
  • 2 fluid ounces water
  • 3 sugar cubes
  • 2 teaspoons egg whites
  • 1 dash herbal bitters (found in liquor stores)


  1. Shake thouroughly and strain into a martini glass.
  2. This would be great for Halloween it has a misty green color.
