Combine absinthe, simple syrup, and bitters in a shaker tin.  Shake over ice, briefly. Strain into a champagne flute, and top with sparkling wine.  Garnish with an orange twist.

Land of Milk & Honey


  • 2 oz Honey
  • 1 oz Heavy Cream
  • 1 Eye-dropper of Bittercube Blackstrap Bitters
  • 2 oz soda water
  • 1 oz canned nitro cold press coffee


Shake honey, heavy cream, and bitters over ice, vigorously. Pour, ice and all, into a glass, and top with soda water and nitro cold press.

(Note: while Eat Street Social uses kegged nitro cold-press coffee from Brooklyn Center’s “Tiny Footprint”, they recommend Black Eye Coffee Roasters canned nitro cold-press if making this recipe at home).

Eat Street Social celebrates new-wave craft cocktails and neighborhood fare in Minneapolis’s Whittier neighborhood. Saturday & Sunday brunch is for parents, families, and kids alike, featuring brunch cocktails and several non-alcoholic brunch mocktails.
