An Untimely Death
½ oz absinthe½ oz Cherry Heering
¼ oz lemon juice

Tools: Ice crusher (or a mallet and a ziploc), cocktail shaker.
Fill a champagne flute (I used an oversized 8 ouncer) about 2/3 full of crushed ice. Shake the absinthe, cherry liqueur, and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker for about 15 seconds. Strain into the crushed ice and top off with chilled sparkling wine.
