The Vineyard Lounge Recipe: The Tink Drink

August 07, 2017

The Tink Drink is a magical elixir of absinthe, lemon juice, and sparkling wine. Like the green-clad fairy of storybook legend, absinthe has a reputation as a mischievous green-hued enchanter. Flavored with anise (black licorice) and wormwood, and often associated with artists in pursuit of alternative realities, the legend of this drink's mind-altering power is not borne out by personal experience. Instead, it simply provides a pleasant backbone to your new favorite summertime sipper.

PREP TIME: 5 minutes


- 1/2 ounce Pacifique Absinthe
- 1/2 ounce lemon juice
- 1 ounce simple syrup
- Sparkling Wine to top
- Lemon twist for garnish


Assemble ingredients in order given, in a tall glass.
