Green Fairy

Green Fairy Drink Recipe - Absinthe, Water, Lemon, Egg White, Angostura Bitters

The Green Fairy cocktail is a very old classic, probably one of the oldest cocktails in the world. It's so named because its main ingredient, absinthe, is green.

The Sour Apple Pie shooter cocktail is so simple, but so tasty. It blends sour apple and cinnamon schnapps together, and the taste really is reminiscent of apple pie.
