FAQ's

PREPARATION_TECHNIQUES

Why is The Pink Fairy stirred instead of shaken?

The Pink Fairy is stirred instead of shaken to ensure a smooth consistency without creating too much dilution or incorporating air bubbles, which could cloud the cocktail. Stirring gently combines the ingredients, particularly the absinthe and gin, in a way that preserves their nuanced flavors.

INGREDIENT_SPECIFICS

What type of absinthe is recommended for The Pink Fairy?

For The Pink Fairy, a traditional, high-quality absinthe is recommended to achieve the desired flavor profile. Look for absinthes known for their balanced wormwood and anise flavors, as this will contribute to the cocktail's distinctive taste and aroma.

GARNISHING_TIPS

What garnishes complement The Pink Fairy?

Given its floral and herbal notes, The Pink Fairy pairs well with a light garnish that doesn't overpower its delicate flavors. Consider using a thin lemon twist or a small sprig of fresh lavender to accentuate its aromatic qualities without overwhelming the cocktail.

ALCOHOL_CONTENT_COMPARISON

How does the alcohol content of The Pink Fairy compare to a standard martini?

The Pink Fairy has an alcohol content of 21.82%, which is slightly lower than a standard martini, which typically ranges from 25% to 32% alcohol by volume (ABV), depending on the recipe. This makes The Pink Fairy a somewhat lighter option, appealing to those who prefer a less potent cocktail.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

What is the ideal serving temperature for The Pink Fairy?

The Pink Fairy is best served cold to enhance its refreshing and crisp characteristics. Chill the cocktail glass before serving and consider stirring the cocktail with ice to reach an optimal serving temperature without diluting the drink's potent flavors.
