Summer Time Lime

Because it's a refreshing citrus drink that's perfect on sweltering days...

Mata Hari Lime Cooler

1 1/2 oz. Absinthe Mata Hari

1 oz. Triple Sec

3 oz. Fresh Sour Mix

Soda Water (to top)

Combine first three ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake thoroughly and strain into an iced Collins glass. Top with soda water and garnish with a lime slice.

And if you have a minute--check out what Hal Wolin had to say about Mata Hari over on A Muddled Thought.
