The Drunken Moogle: Phoenix Down

This post has been edited by the GamesBeat staff. Opinions by GamesBeat community writers do not necessarily reflect those of the staff.

This drink recipe is very peculiar. Typically, I am very against anyone mixing absinthe; it's a liquor best enjoyed with a little added water and not much more.

But the idea of mixing it with a similar herbal liquor like Zwack isn't so repulsive once I think about it. Of course, I don't quite see the connection between strong anise flavor and a sunny, life-giving phoenix from the Final Fantasy series. However, it really looks pretty [via the Drunken Moogle]:

Ingredients:

1/2 shot Absinthe
1/2 shot Zwack
2 tsp. Simple Syrup
1 splash Grenadine
Club Soda
