Snowed in on National Absinthe Day

March 7, 2015

No driving. No flying. Nine inches of fresh snow. And on top of that, it is national absinthe day. What is to be done?

Create a snow-based absinthe drink! Without further ado, the absinthe snowball

The rum is a one year old elixer made of fresh vanilla beans soaked in brown island rum. Like vanilla extract only stronger and rummier.

The absinthe is Swiss.

The milk is 2%.

The nutmeg is fresh ground organic nutmeg.

The snow is not yellow.
