Serves 1

  • Absinthe, for rinsing
  • 2 dashes Peychaud's bitters
  • 1 teaspoon orange liqueur, such as Pierre Ferrand Dry Orange Curacao, Grand Marnier, or Cointreau
  • Champagne, or another dry sparkling wine
  • 1 lemon twist
  1. Pour a very small amount of absinthe into a coupe glass. Swirl the glass to coat it with absinthe; then pour it out. (If you're making multiple Resolutions at once, you can pour the absinthe from this first glass into a second glass, swirl, then pour it into a third glass, etc.)
  2. To the rinsed glass, add the bitters and orange liqueur. Top up with Champagne. Garnish with a lemon twist, and serve immediately.

We served this at Christmas Eve (using Cointreau and Prosecco) and everyone loved it. Although ours didn't have quite the vivid redness of the pictures, it was very festive and was a big hit. The absinthe rinse in particular piqued some interest among our guests. This cocktail might become a Christmas tradition.
