Nicki the Peacock
- 1.0 oz. London Dry Gin
- 0.5 oz. Sloe Gin
- 0.25 oz simple syrup
- 1 barspoon Absinthe
Stir with ice and pour into cocktail glass.
Top with 2.0 oz. Champagne.
A mix of high and low ingredients, with a stab and a miss at sophistication, for the failed ballerina who would drink champagne from a can. We start with a gin (though a nice one here) and add some sloe gin for a sweet and tart punch, then straight simple syrup to smooth out the sweetnesss. The absinthe is the fleeting green fairy for the artist, and the champagne adds an effervescence to the final product.
Ideally you would garnish with a peacock’s feather. If you can get if from her wig.
