Okay, so it breaks all the absinthe rules, but if you fill a glass with ice, pour an ounce of Lasala, and then top it with some ice cold cream soda, you got one heck of a delicious beverage. How many nights have I enjoyed this creation? I cannot count, but I enjoyed them all.
Also if you mix an ounce of Lasala with an ounce of brandy, shake it in ice, and pour. We call it a 'Gilgamesh.' Excellent little shooter that you might want to sip.
Lasala seems to taste best the colder you serve it.
Excellent value, low in alcohol but nice and refreshing. Nice if you want something light before or after a meal.
Lightly citrusy, clean, smooth and best of all shockingly inexpensive. Philippe Lasala is an excellent starting point for the beginning absintheur.
