The sun is out and Spring finally seems to be just around the corner.

This little green beauty from Helium will definitely help invoke it.

Shake hard with ice and fine strain into a lowball glass over rock ice. Garnish with a parsley leaf  and a spray of absinthe for the final aromatic touch.

The Evergreen Sour is inspired by Danish summer and was made ny Jeppe Nothlev and Nicklas Jørgensen for the Aboslut Invite cocktail competition in 2016 for which they won the Danish finals.

I believe that true mastery eventually leads to original creation given the right conditions. I love creative cocktails that push the limits of flavor pairing. But I can't deny I have a personal preference for whisky and love everything that is clear and stirred.
