Chimera Cup

Monika Ozog, Junoon, New York, NY

“Working with absinthe is sometimes a challenge. I thought orange would work well with the anise flavor similar to how fennel and orange pair together. I wasn’t sure if it was possible to make a fruitier absinthe drink but if I don’t try I won’t know!”
