The Halfpipe transforms absinthe into a dessert-like cocktail that is quite delicious. In it, the anise flavor is mixed with coffee and cream liqueurs and the result is a drink with a sweet candy taste.

For the cream liqueur you can take your pick, though may want to think about an Irish cream.

If you notice, it is suggested that this drink be served with only the chill of the glass to cool it down. If you like, stir this in a mixing glass and strain or chill it out with a slow melting ice ball in the glass.

The cocktail was created by Lucid Absinthe in honor of the 2010 Winter Olympics, the Halfpipe is an excellent addition to an Olympic party.
