Ostensibly invented by Ernest Hemingway, this cocktail shares a name with the author’s classic treatise on bullfighting. The original calls for absinthe, but Pernod anise liqueur is a good substitute when that’s not available.
|5 oz well-chilled Champagne|
|1 oz Pernod|
Preparation: How to make a Death in the Afternoon
- Add the absinthe, then the Champagne to a chilled flute, saucer, or coupe glass and serve.
