MermaidMary's Cocktail of the Week: The Musket Trader

Long Lunch 26/01/2018

This week's cocktail comes courtesy of Parasol & Swing, a new rooftop bar in Auckland's Viaduct. 

The Musket Trader

In a Collins glass (a tall glass) over ice add:

  • 30 or 60mls of Rye Whiskey (Bourbon) depending on how strong you enjoy your cocktails.
  • 10ml of yellow chartreuse (or a liqueur like schnapps, herbal liqueur or Galliano Vanilla)
  • Then a couple of dashes of absinthe (Pernod or even a dash of bitters will also do)
  • Juice of one granny smith apple

Garnish the drink with some fresh sage and some dehydrated apple chips.  (or apple slices if you don’t have dehydrated apple)
