While most backbars typically house just a single bottle of absinthe—tapped mainly for Sazeracs and Corpse Revivers—Brooklyn’s Maison Premiere prefers to carry between 30 and 40 varieties at any given time.

Bring Back the Yellow Parrot

Though the bar suspended operations last March and remains dark as of early 2021, when it should be toasting to its 10th anniversary, the hiatus hasn’t discouraged bar director and resident wormwood conservator William Elliott from making the case for an all-time favorite absinthe cocktail—the Yellow Parrot. “On paper, it was such an outlandish recipe,” recalls Elliott of the equal-parts mixture of absinthe, yellow Chartreuse and apricot brandy. “Commingling these sweet and strong ingredients … it sounded disastrous.” But the Yellow Parrot has been a stalwart of iconic recipe books since the early 20th century.

In any case, Elliott credits Maxwell Britten, Maison’s founding bar director, with first floating the drink as a candidate for their menu in the bar’s early days. Queen Elizabeth Cocktail Recipe.

So what say we forget about celebrating 1621-style and take our next option.

Pear & Pub Ale Party Punch Cocktail Recipe

His Pear & Pub Ale Party Punch calls on two spirits, two juices, a homemade syrup and some beer, so there’s a lot going on within. The punch begins with rye whiskey and dark rum. It’s a potent combo to be sure, but one with complementary flavors that work well together—rye’s natural spiciness merges with the rich dark rum to produce a boozy synergy. Orange and lemon juices provide a welcome vein of fresh citrus that runs through the cocktail, while cinnamon-pear syrup adds sweetness, complexity and spice. For the beer, Webb recommends a good English ale, like Lucky Town Pub Ale, which is brewed right in Jackson. While Webb’s recipe hits all the right notes, you can temper the ratios if the punch is too strong for your crowd.
