What are you drinking tonight?

I think Pastis would substitute well for the Absinthe as it is just a dash. I’ve never substituted the syrup for the liqueur, but in a pinch I’d try it in a smaller quantity as the syrup is really sweet.

Went for tapas last night and had a couple of these at the bar: as we were leaving I noticed they were selling it retail so I picked one up. It's from Menorca and has been made there since the 18th century. It's unusual in that it is not a grain based distillate, it's from eau-de-vie and is rested in American oak barrels before bottling. Well worth a try.

Does it taste more like brandy or gin?
