And here it is, folks
Our original 2021 FOOL’S PARADISE HOLIDAY DRINK
ICE STATION REINDEER
1 oz pineapple juice
1/2 oz grapefruit juice
1/2 oz Noilly Prat rouge vermouth (or similar quinine-forward sweet red vermouth)
1 barspoon absinthe
1 barspoon agave syrup
1 egg white
a few drops of Bitter Truth Jerry Thomas Bitters
tiny pinch of salt
Squeeze grapefruit juice
Separate an egg (Reserve the yolk for challah or babka or any other use)
When you're ready to go:
Shake shake shake the drink in a Boston shaker (the two-piece thingy) and strain. A reverse shake is recommended to best fluff up your meringue.
Pour the mixture into your pre-chilled glass or glasses. With a dropper or a small spoon, top the foam with a few decorative drops of Angostura bitters. Squeeze a piece of grapefruit peel over the glass to express the fragrant oils; twist the peel into the drink, and serve.
And to all a good night!
