Color: artificial flashy-green, La Fée-like, not really unattractive though. Louche: nice opalescent louche that forms quickly. Maybe a bit too quick to be 'clean' but attractive nonetheless. Aroma:...

A Classic Cocktail

Earthquake Cocktail

1/3 gin
1/3 whisky
1/3 absinthe

Shake with ice. Strain into cocktail glass.

Ed. Note: So called because if there should happen to be an earthquake when you are drinking it, it won't matter. This is a cocktail whose potency is not to be taken too lightly or for that matter, too frequently!
