A twist on Mr. Boston’s Alexander’s Sister Cocktail from 1935, our Alexander the Great replaces Creme de Menthe with fresh Spearmint leaves and Absinthe for a vibrant creamy after-dinner treat.
Combine sugar and mint leaves into a shaker and muddle the mint to release the oils from the leaves.
The cream to the shaker and stir until all of the sugar granules have dissolved. Next, add the Absinthe and Gin.
Over the mixture over ice and strain into a 4 ounce stemmed glass. Garnish with a mint leaf for a fancier drinking experience.
