I’ve finally entered the world of cheese and cocktails pairings! It’s all thanks to The New Cocktail Hour, a recently released cocktail guidebook for the at-home mixologist. It’s filled with approachable yet delicious recipes complete with a snippet of history behind the drink, food pairing suggestions, and descriptions so vivid you can almost taste them. It’s also written by Tenaya Darlington, one of my all time favorite cheese bloggers, and her brother Andre, a cocktail aficionado and blogger himself.
I’m nuts for absinthe, so I took it upon myself to come up with the ultimate green fairy pairing to pleasure my licorice-loving palate. I matched an absinthe-washed cheese with an absinthe-rinsed cocktail and found myself in a murky storm of ecstasy.
