French Pearl cocktails are sweet, but not in the sense of the typical sweet cocktails we’ve come to expect. The taste of this one could be described as botanically sweet. Designed by Audrey Saunder for Pernod Absinthe, the cocktail combines Absinthe with an appetizer. It is enhanced with Plymouth Gin and a fragrant absinthe that is infused with fresh mint. There is also a little rock candy syrup added for flavor and fun. All the flavors, including the lime, work together to create a refreshing, sour, and citrusy palate. With all of these great flavor combinations, the French Pearl is a great drink for any occasion, especially Valentine’s Day.
