Jeremy McElroy’s “Monsieur Mac’s Death in the Afternoon”

The Tribune’s Taste Tribunal finds this drink to be acceptable. It is a fascinating colour, and blends the liquors well. Naylor could have done with more liquorice, while Lougheed could have done with less – this is probably a drink for which your taste for liquorice is going to determine your amicability towards the beverage. All in all, three and three quarter stars out of five.

  • 1 1/2 oz absinthe
  • 4 oz iced champagne
  • 1/2 oz dry vermouth
  1. Pour 3 tablespoons of Absinthe into champagne flute
  2. Add splash of dry vermouth
  3. Pour enough champagne to turn cocktail a milky white

Absinthe represents my aversion to status quo (conventional liquors). Its potency represents my earnest in wanting this position, while its effectiveness in intoxication represents my ability to get the job done.

The champagne represents professionalism and reason. I believe I exhibit both of these traits, and enjoy the crisp tingle of sparkling wine accordingly.

Vermouth is a fortified wine infused with herbs and spices. This represents my inner strength and vegetarianism at the same time. Added to this cocktail, it gives a subtle kick, and makes you sip it more carefully.

Overall this is a fantastic drink that everyone should vote for… I mean drink.
