Maison Premiere's Pontarlier Julep

The drink: Pontarlier Julep

The bar: Maison Premiere

The price: $13

The ingredients: La Clandestine absinthe, Plymouth gin, Aperol, sweet vermouth, orange flower water

The buzz: Maison Premiere recently rolled out with a spring cocktail menu featuring four different juleps, none of which is of the classic mint variety. Though the Pontarlier Julep is garnished with a full sprig of mint, smooth Swiss La Clandestine absinthe-- endowed with strong anise and subtle fennel flavors--is its main ingredient. Aperol gives the drink low notes of bitter citrus, while sweet vermouth and Plymouth gin add herbal touches and a bit of sweetness to the mix.
