A creepy and potent drink for the spookiest night of the year, the Death in the Afternoon cocktail was invented by author Ernest Hemingway in 1935 and is an effervescent mix of absinthe and Champagne for a bold, spine-tingling serve.
We made ours the traditional way with the light anise aromas of Two Birds Absinthe and chilled Champagne, but you could also use a Prosecco and sweeten it slightly with a sugar syrup.
Death in the Afternoon Recipe
30ml Two Birds Absinthe
Pour the absinthe into a chilled Champagne or coupe glass and top with ice cold Champagne. A garnish is not required but the addition of lemon peel nicely balances the ingredients.
