Cocktail Recipe Thursday: Mint Sparkler W/ Absinthe and Vodka

absinthe vodka sparkling cocktail

Oh it’s the best day of the week, cocktail recipe Thursday! That means the weekend is close. With this short work week, it just made every day a little more hectic, so I made your weekend cocktail a little more simple.  The Mint Sparkler cocktail is refreshing and bubbly.

I usually just have club soda in my fizzy drinks, so if you like it a little less sweet, swap the lemon-lime for club soda. This sparkling cocktail does have absinthe, the licorice flavored alcohol. If you don’t have any Lucid Absinthe sitting around, you might want to head to Bev-mo and get some. It is a surprisingly versatile member of my bar.


Mint Sparkler
1 oz. Lucid Absinthe
1 ½ oz. pear vodka
1 oz. peach schnapps
4 oz. lemon-lime soda
1 mint sprig

In a cocktail shaker, add Lucid Absinthe, pear vodka, peach schnapps, lemon-lime soda and ice. Shake and strain into a highball glass. Garnish with a mint sprig and serve.

If you absolutely cannot find it, make the cocktail without the absinthe, and enjoy just as is. ;-)
