With tomorrow, May 21st, being the date pegged for Armageddon things could get a little hairy. To ease the pain, we figured this 1935 classic was a perfect fit. Absinthe and Champagne… might as well go out in boozy style! Apparently, Ernest Hemingway created this lovely cocktail as his contribution to a celebrity recipe collection. Mr. Hemingway recommends, “Drink three to five of these slowly.”

Ingredients:
1 ½ oz absinthe
4 oz chilled Champagne

Directions:
In Hemingway’s words, “Pour one jigger absinthe into a Champagne glass. Add Champagne until it attains
the proper opalescent milkiness.”
