Brandy & Absinthe Cocktail

Last night as a pre valentines date night (no kids) I made my hubby this new delicious cocktail and it did not disappoint! It is fresh and so smooth. I was inspired by a fellow bloggers instagram post and recipe here for her Villadry cocktail. I changed a few things and made it my own what a great drink idea!

Enjoy

In a martini shaker over ice mix all ingredients (except absinthe) and shake for 1 min. Rinse glass with absinthe and leave remainder in glass. Pour into cocktail glass and throw sprig of thyme on top. Enjoy!
