Confessions of a Mixologist: Death in the Afternoon
Don't be frightened by the name. Esteemed American author, Ernest Hemingway invented this cocktail and named it after his 1935 novel, Death in the Afternoon. Hemingway's original instructions on how to enjoy were as follows:
"Pour one jigger absinthe into a Champagne glass. Add iced Champagne until it attains the proper opalescent milkiness. Drink three to five of these slowly."
It's definitely a powerful drink, but you will love it. Mardi Gras goers substitute mimosas for this iconic cocktail.
