mcleodb: The Brinstar (Metroid cocktail)
1 pt cachaca
1 pt absinthe
1 pt simple syrup
1 sprig of Mint
Directions: Muddle the lime, simple syrup, and mint together in a shaker. Add ice and the alcohol and shake well. Pour the mixture into a lowball glass.
A note from the creator:
Brinstar is a zone overgrown with vegetation. Having very recently been introduced to a lime-y cocktail known as a caipirinha, I decided to try combining it with another leafy drink - namely, a mojito. The resulting combination, plus a little extra, wound up being a tasty creation that I’m rather proud of.
