This Daiquiri-like cocktail by The Savoy’s Tom Walker is as cool and crisp as a dip in a mountain stream. Don’t be scared of the absinthe – it makes the drink. By Alice Lascelles in The Sunday Times Magazine.
Glass: Coupe spritzed with Absinthe. Garnish: Cucumber
Crush the cucumber and mint in the bottom of the shaker with the rum, lime and sugar syrup. Shake hard with ice and double-strain into a coupe spritzed with absinthe. Top with a splash of soda. Garnish and serve.
