Think, Sip, Write – ep 11: Apollo Missions

I talk about the Apollo moon missions, some conspiracies about them, the facts, and sips on a delicious cocktail that you have to try. Recipe is below.

Thanks to Philadelphia Distillery

Try my “Lunar Lander” and let me know what you think.

1 shot Penn 1681 Vodka
1 shot Vieux Carre Absinthe
4 leaves of basil
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
2 lemon slices
Seltzer or club soda

Place muddled 4 leaves of basil, lemon, sugar and water into a pot to simmer. Stir until sugar is dissolved then bring to a light boil. Remove from heat. This is your simple syrup. Take the vodka and absinthe and pour over ice. Add 3/4 shot chilled simple syrup. Top with seltzer or club and serve cold. Enjoy.
