25ml Absinthe

25ml St Germain (elderflower flavoured liquor)

15ml elderflower cordial

8-10 finely chopped cucumber slices

Half a lime


Cubed ice

Begin by combining the Absinthe, St. Germain and elderflower cordial in a short glass. Squeeze in half a lime and add around 5 cucumber slices. Stir in a few cubes of ice. Add the remaining cucumber slices and fill the glass with ice. Top up the glass with water and serve with a short straw. Add a splash of gomme if you prefer your drinks that little bit sweeter.

Fun Facts

Absinthe has had a colourful history – even being banned in many countries in the 19th century. However, this slight controversy didn’t prevent its distinctive flavour attracting the palates of notorious artists and novelists like Pablo Picasso and Ernest Hemingway later in the 20th century (perhaps aiding them in their creative process!). Absinthe, due to its characteristic green colour, has the nickname ‘The Green Fairy’ – hence why our cocktail has been named this. It’s a daring drink on our summer menu that will leave you wanting more.
