High & Wilde

Any recipe starting off with an Oscar Wilde quote must by definition be brilliant!
“Work is the curse of the drinking classes” Wilde is quoted in Olive, a
food magazine (issue January 2012). It contains a recipe for a drink called High & Wilde.

You start off by soaking a sugar cube in absinthe and dropping it in a champagne flute. I used 77.7 promille absinthe I once bought in Germany. If you drink it on its own it will melt your windpipe!


At this point you should add 10ml crème de pêche. I did not have any and added some lemon sirup.

Top up with prosecco and you are ready to go.

The drink tastes nice and with every sip it gets a bit more absinthy….and so do you. So drink responsibly and try not to cut your ear off!
