Phoenix Down

This week we are diving into the end of Alan Davis’ run on Excalibur. Q’s white elephant gift to us all gives us the warpies story line, as well as the return of the Dark Phoenix.



  • ½ shot Absinthe
  • ½ shot Zwack (Jagermeister will work too)
  • 2 tsp. Simple Syrup
  • 1 Splash Grenadine
  • Fill rest of the glass with Club Soda

Mix the absinthe, syrup, and soda water in a smaller glass (a perigord absinthe glass is used in the picture) until the drink becomes opalescent.  Add ice if you prefer the drink really cold. Before serving, add the Zwack and grenadine.  Both will settle nicely, leaving a nice orange on the top and a deep crimson below.

Unfortunately, Phoenix Downs may not be 100% effective when raising the dead.

Episode 35 - Excalibur is out on Monday December 12th.
