Bad advice

In anticipation of our very own Absinthe Parlour, the Doll will be sampling and sharing a selection of absinthe cocktails. (And then a few cures for drinking too many absinthe cocktails.) Let's say we start with the hardest and work backwards from oblivion...

We love a cocktail named after a book. Or a book named after a cocktail. Or a book and cocktail given the same name simultaneously. Any of these do it for us.

Hemingway's instructions: (follow at own risk) 'Pour one jigger of absinthe into a champagne glass. Add iced champagne until it obtains the proper opalescent milkiness. Drink 3 to 5 of these slowly.'

Doll's instructions: (to minimise risk and still remember your name) Rinse champagne glass with absinthe. Add iced champagne and garnish with lemon zest.

Let the previews begin...

The Doll's March debut is edging ever closer, and so it's about time we drop some tantalising hints of what you'll find in the shop.

Prints Please

Much more to come in the days to come...
