The week is still young. We’re days away from the weekend yet, and we need a little reminder of those days long gone. Those days where we acted without inhibitions. Where a weekend could pop up in the middle of a week.
Luckily for you reading this post, we have a perfectly fitting, mid-week treat to share with you. But before you go stirring around in your liquor cabinet, you may want to hear one quite brilliant man’s words on another very important part of any good cocktail…
“The water is as important as the liquor. I’m going on record to say this. I’ve also written about how important the ice is to a cocktail. That’s why I like to control the quality of my water.
My water filter is no less important than the quality of my spirits. True, my home is located on a particularly pure water source and I get to this source through a well. Unfortunately, this water source is packed with minerals that burn right through the copper lines.
Without filtration, the water can take on a cloudy appearance. Hence my Mavea, Inspired Water Pitcher.” – Warren Bobrow
The Misbegotten Youth Cocktail (for 1 cocktail):
2oz La Clandestine Absinthe (or your choice, I love Tenneyson, Lucid, Nouvelle Orleans, St. Georges, Amerique 1912, and the list goes on…)
1/4 cup of fresh blueberries
Crushed Mavea-filtered ice
Fresh mint for garnish
Blueberries frozen into Mavea-filtered ice cubes
Muddle the fresh blueberries in a Boston Shaker. Add 2oz of the absinthe, 2oz simple syrup, some crushed Mavea-filtered ice, and 3oz of cool Mavea-filtered water. Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint, and drink very carefully and with passion!
