Best cocktail and absynthe

This one was a discovery suggested by Johanne. WOW is all I have to say. Talk about really original cocktails. And the waiter spent a lot of time explaining things to us. Ok it was not crowded but still he was passionate. They offer everything a bar can need, consultations, classes for groups. Its a great place for events. They are specialized (in secret) in Absinthe as well with a large selection and the right tools to serve it properly. No food is served. Two draw backs: its a bit far from the metro without frequent bus service and its mostly stool seating without back support.

But still worth the outing. Here is one of my cocktails I sampled:

Une coupe de soleil à la française qui se compose à votre choix de Citadelle gin ou de Grey Goose vodka avec du vermouth blanc, du sirop de lavande et du jus de canneberge blanc. Grey Goose vodka, white vermouth, lavender syrup and white cranberry juice

the absinthe ritual

Sorry Evelyne, I’m not keeping this a secret.

This dark little hideaway serves a drink with a history: absinthe. Not the “poison” of a hundred years ago, but a choice of 3 varieties of a modern liquor. You must watch the whole ritual with the ice machine, and the water dripping ever so perfectly over a sugar cube into the glass. The bartender was very knowledgeable and confident in introducing our group to this notorious drink.

You can also have absinthe mixed into a cocktail (check out the menu with the funky names and descriptions) or another taste combination that suits you.


And after all the setup and procedure, what does absinthe taste like? A strong licorice flavor with a herbal finish. Sweet from the sugar, but not syrupy. It was not too strong, but it could have been colder — I added a bit more ice water as I drank it.

I liked it, I would have this again, but one drink for the evening was plenty for me.
