The Velpar created by Adam Bryan, Austin Texas, is a wonderful after midnight drink. The absinthe vitalizes you if you want to keep going on for a few hours! St. Germain Elderflower liqueur sweetens this drink nicely, but not too much. I am quite sure Ernest Hemingway would have liked this drink.


2 oz. White Rum, 1 oz. Lemon Juice, 1/2 oz. St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur, 1/2 oz. Absinthe

Garnish: Lemon Twist and skewered Cherry


 Shake the ingredients with ice and strain into a cocktail coupe. Garnish with lemon twist and cherry.

    Made this last night for friends. I think this is going to be a solid go-to this year at our house, once the weather warms up!

    My favorite drink of the January samplings. Well Done!
