Suissesse Cocktail

Based on the Suissesse cocktail in Stanley Clisby Arthur's Famous New Orleans Drinks and How to Mix 'Em from 1937, this drink calls for much more absinthe than most cocktails featuring the strong anise spirit. But it's balanced with cream, frothy egg white and sweet almond-flavored syrup. It is traditionally shaken but can be made in the blender for an even frothier outcome.
