This refreshing mojito-style absinthe cocktail perfectly marries sweet liquorice, tart lime and fresh mint with a bit of fizz, perfect on a hot day

The secret to this cocktail is to find a balance between all of the flavours: not too sweet, not too sour, not too much aniseed, minty but not overpowering.  Drink ice cold with lots of fizz from the soda. 


  • 50ml Deep South Absinthe
  • 25ml simple syrup
  • 25ml fresh lime juice
  • 8-10 fresh mint leaves
  • 200ml club soda

To make

  1. Muddle mint, lime and sugar in a sturdy fancy glass.
  2. Stir in absinthe
  3. Add ice and top up with club soda
  4. Garnish with a sprig of mint, a lime wheel or a stalk of lemon grass
