Le Tourment Vert Absinthe Review

absinthe.jpgHail the “holy trinity”! Last week I had the pleasure to meet the faces behind Le Tourment Vert (www.letourmentvert.com) and experience their vision of what this wonderful spirit offers after such a long hiatus from our shores. This Absinthe is handcrafted in small batches by Bruno Delannoy of Vinet Ege and combines fourteen herbs to create a truly inspirational blend. Moving beyond the ritualistic, yet fun, Classic and Bohemian Method of enjoying Absinthe, Le Tourment Vert mixes perfectly with a variety of flavorful cocktails. I particularly enjoyed La Fee Verte, the Green Fairy.

The Green Fairy

Mix in Shaker

2oz. Le Tourment Absinthe
1/2 oz. Lime Juice
1 1/2 oz. Orange Juice,
squeeze of lime

Shake well and pour into martini glass, garnish with lime.

A perfect green drink! I may include it in my rounds this St. Patty’s day.

    How is this a review? It sounds like an advertisement for LTV (which is not genuine absinthe anyway).
