Thirsty Thursday: Peepin' It Real Cocktail
It’s more than just alliteration; it’s a statement, a proclamation that Thursdays are when the weekend should really start. Kicking it off right is the key, and what better way than with a cocktail that not only takes the edge off, but tastes good too. A hard thing to disagree with, we know. Drink up, get down and go to sleep happy.
Bright blue, wonderfully sweet and yet, magically, still potent enough to counter long, grueling week days and weekend boredom alike, Alie and Georgia's Peep-inspired cocktail is a sip to behold. Think of it as a warm, sugary trip down memory-lane, except absinthe-kissed and shamelessly lit on fire (yes, actually). While kids scamper around in search of candy-filled eggs this Easter weekend, bring the peeps out to party with a tasty treat, cleverly dubbed the Peepin' It Real Cocktail.
Bottoms up, folks.
2 puffed marshmallow-shaped candies,1 to ignite and 1 to garnish, (recommended: Peeps)
Using your absinthe spoon to perch the marshmallow candy over your glass, pour the absinthe over the marshmallow candy and then carefully light the marshmallow candy on fire, letting the molten sugar drip into the absinthe.
