"Careless Love | Crafted Pour"

"Hello friends! Tonight, I have a split-base cocktail featuring one of my favorite spirits, absinthe! Since absinthe was illegal at the time of this recipe, I chose to use an absinthe made from an infusion kit my wife got me for Christmas a few years back. This infusion kit takes botanicals present in traditional absinthe and infuses them in a neutral grain spirit; in my case, 190-proof Everclear, tempered with a bit of water and bottled at 168.94 proof, if my math is correct. While not a traditional absinthe, this has all the flavors of absinthe and still has a wonderful louche. When combined with the gin, sugar, and egg white, this cocktail has a great creaminess and luscious mouthfeel. This drink is a wonderful gin and absinthe cocktail and will be a welcome addition to any gin-lover's or absinthe aficionado's repertoire! Cheers!", "undefined", "Careless Love",
