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.


Step by Step method

  • Muddle

    Combine sugar and mint leaves into a shaker and muddle the mint to release the oils from the leaves.

  • Add

    The cream to the shaker and stir until all of the sugar granules have dissolved. Next, add the Absinthe and Gin.

  • Shake

    Over the mixture over ice and strain into a 4 ounce stemmed glass. Garnish with a mint leaf for a fancier drinking experience.
