Absinthe Elixir Cocktail


Happy Friday! Here’s the second cocktail in a series showcasing jewelry by HSN favorite, jewelry designer Heidi Daus. Absinthe gives this drink an unexpected kick, and a gorgeous green color that’ll brighten up these last few gray days of winter. Formerly difficult to find, Absinthe has seen a popularity resurgence, and you can now find the toned down version at most liquor stores.


  • ½ oz Absinthe
  • 1 oz. clear tequila
  • 1 oz. Rose’s Lime Juice Concentrate
  • Club soda or seltzer (optional)
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary or thyme (optional- to serve)


  1. In shaker filled with ice, combine the absinthe, tequila, and lime juice. Top up your drink with seltzer if desired to turn it into a festive bubbly treat.
  2. Strain into a glass (over fresh ice if desired) and serve with the fresh rosemary sprig if desired, and enjoy!
