I’m going to make this short and sweet…as this Sleepy Hollow Cocktail has already gotten me feeling good. In honor of Cocktail Monday (the Monday I come off call) I present to you… THE SLEEPY HOLLOW.
1/2 oz of Absinthe (to swirl around your cup and discard)
2 oz of mezcal (I used 100% agave Hornitos :medium aged: tequila)
1 oz of St. Elizabeth Allspice dram (I used Drambuie)
2 dashes of angostura bitters
1-2 sprigs of rosemary for a smokey fragrance.
Swirl the absinthe in a cup and discard. Then add the mezcal (tequila), dram, angostura bitters with ice in a shaker and drain into the cup (with the residual absinthe)…garnish with the rosemary and light it on fire for a smokey fragrance. Serve immediately. (Serves one).
So above is my photo of my Monday Cocktail...pretty pleased and ready for bed as it is my MAMAS night cap (it’s gone now)…did my yoga tonight…with hip openers…and topped the night off with this cocktail! Tomorrow I’ll be sore…I know…but I feel good right now!
THE MOON, however, is in LIbra tonight...so it is fitting to just BEEEEE! No right or wrongs matter tonight…because with the Scales of the Libra teaches us…without the wrong there would be no right…you have to have both…so just BE…and don’t fuss. Let it go… 🙂 It’s a NEW MOON…so set an intention for this lunar cycle…maybe it could be about letting go of something…
Love & Moonlight,
HAPPY NEW MOON AND COCKTAIL MONDAY!!!
