Green Valley Cocktail
Green walnuts from the verdant valleys of Ticino meet the original green fairy in this cocktail that tastes like a bag of liquorice allsorts.
The nuttiness comes from the Nocino, a spirit made with unripe walnuts and popular in Italian Switzerland—more in this post.
2 parts Nocino
1 part Absinthe
Lime to garnish
In an ice filled tumbler, pour in the Nocino and absinthe. Stir.
Fill to the top with sparkling water and garnish with lime.
- It's also nice with a splash of orange juice instead of the fizzy water. Then it tastes a bit like the orange allsorts...
