Hemingway's Death in the Afternoon (cocktail)

This cocktail is basically plain champagne infused with a hint of absinthe (which I have a theoretical and aesthetic passion for), and it has been named in honor of "Death in the Afternoon", written by my beloved Hemingway. :)
It's not as sweet as I generally like them, but the name and the story make up for anything. Anyway, it might be just the thing for people who, unlike me, prefer their drinks without a ton of sugar and cream in them. :))
Recipe source: here

Last year: Blueberry and carrot smoothie (raw vegan).
Two years ago: Coffee-marinated chicken, Fennel and walnut ricotta-filled muffins, The Ratatouille from the movie Ratatouille and Tofu Parmigiana (Italian).

Ingredients (serves 2):
  • 50 ml absinth
  • 250 ml champagne

Pour the absinthe on the bottom of the glasses and move them around a bit so the liquid coats their walls.

Gently pour the champagne on top. It's done! :) (Bottoms up)
