Absinthe and Oranges

On my blog, I post a recipe from Scott Baird of the Bon Vivants. It's from the book A Taste for Absinthe

This is my lousy picture of it.

There's a better picture of the drink from the book over at FineCooking.

L’arc de Triomphe
By Scott Baird

1 fl. oz. Absinthe
1 fl. oz. Fresh Orange Juice
1 fl. oz. Fresh Lemon Juice
1 fl. oz. Bitter Orange Marmalade
¾ fl. oz. Egg White
Peychaud’s Bitters
1 fl. oz. Seltzer Water
Wide Strip of Orange Peel, for Garnish

Add the absinthe, orange juice, lemon juice, marmalade, egg white, and a dash of
Peychaud’s to a pint glass with the spring from a Hawthorn strainer (remove the spring from the strainer and drop it in the glass). Dry shake for 30 seconds, until it is nice and frothy. Open it up, add ice, and shake well to make cold.

Pour the seltzer into a footed beer glass or short stemmed wineglass. Strain the drink into the glass. Add 2 dashes of Peychaud’s and garnish with orange zest. Serve.
