The Green Beret, a cocktail Curtis designed for a Lucid cocktail competition. If you're looking for an absinthe drink that doesn't put absinthe direct in your face constantly, perhaps this is your drink. This was the second rendition of the cocktail design that had much less absinthe contribution yet still keeps it in the drink flavor profile.

Absinthe and champagne, one might ask why you'd need to combine the two ingredients together given they're both, on their own, a solid drinking buddy, but no...wait, there is more. Hemingway had a problem with alcohol, the problem was that he loved it.

If you like absinthe, the Absinthe Sour is focused on your taste except, it may also fit other people too. Jennifer sat on the show and managed to sip on it without the "ew" face going on so that says something for the dynamics of this drink. There is definitely a beautiful citrus gin with some sweetness and a long drawn out finish that slowly melts into a numbing "black jelly bean" flavor, but muted.

Rustle submitted the Monkey Gland, and this is how his name is spelled...IAN. The Monkey Gland cocktail brings the classy flavor and design but our version included a bit of soap... yeah, we had to create it twice. Yes, Ian forgot to rinse out the shaker and poured soapy water into our cocktail so we had to re-create it. This episode is full of slapstick comedy..by mistake.

A cocktail designed for a championship contest, however we have a slight feeling it brings on the recollection of drinking orange juice after brushing your teeth. The mint against the citrus is peculiar and slightly off-balance on our tongue. All-in-all, not a cocktail we'd find ourselves trying again.

Of course, the main goal was to focus on Fassett's 65 to see how it compared to some of the other brands, since this one is a US-based brand retailing around $49.99, so it should become more easily accessible than some European absinthe brands. So, it's fun to compare it to other absinthe brands that have existed for so many years.

Green Beast Cocktail, with Lucid Absinthe

Absinthe time! We take some Lucid absinthe and bust out a drink that reminds us of a "light absinthe" cocktail because it's a bit easier on the senses. The Green Beast is still very much an absinthe drink but it has a lighter anise attack with a bit of back-end sourness that's not too acidic. Get yourself a green vinyl shaker, speakeasy martini glass and get building!

A more "sour" Mai Tai alternative (or original) that brings a huge round of flavorful particles of awesome to your face. Nice potency balanced against a grapefruit bite, a mild falernum mid-palate and a comprehensive roller coaster of flavors in the finish. You may confuse the tartness for potency if you're not careful.

A hint of smokey Isley scotch which may come from our bittermen's tiki bitters and a bit of allspice in the mid-palate experience. Overall, a fairly complicated flavor profile without a ton of alcohol coming through. A light muted absinthe finishing.
