Absinthes.com have revealed the perfect absinthes for Halloween and of course one of them is by Swedish metallers WOLF. As previously published, the band unleashed their own brand of WOLF Absinthe on the world earlier this year, on 1st June, to coincide with vocalist Niklas Stålvind’s 40th birthday.
If you would like to concoct the The Devil’s Favourite for Halloween, follow the instructions below:
We have two particular absinthes in mind that match the theme of Halloween better than no other. But at first, we’d like to make a suggestion for a more than suitable cocktail recipe.
Halloween Cocktail: The Devil’s Favourite
- 4 cl WOLF Absinthe
- 3 cl Almond Sirup
- 1 cl Lemon Juice
- 4 Morello Cherries without stones
- Some Champagne
On the bottom of a mixing glass, muddle the morello cherries, lime juice and almond sirup. Add WOLF Absinthe together with ice, shake until well chilled. Strain the mix into a long, chilled cocktail glass (for example a champagne flute) and top with Champagne. You can use some nutmeg to garnish.
In other WOLF news, the band have completed writing songs for their seventh album and are ready to start recording soon. Stay tuned for more news!
Swedish metallers WOLF have just been recording a new video for their song “Absinthe,” from their last album “Legions Of Bastards.” In the words of vocalist Niklas Stålvind: “
Stay tuned for more news of when the video will be released! Metal Shock Finland will be posting it as soon as it is released. WOLF are also currently working on the follow up album to 2011′s “Legions Of Bastards.”
As we previously reported WOLF are holding a special release party for their own brand of absinthe, simply called Wolf Absinthe, also to coincide with the 40th birthday of founding member Niklas Stålvind. The party will take place this Saturday 1st June in Örebro, Sweden, where the band was born in 1995.
Until we can see the new release, check out the band’s last video for “Skull Crusher”:
As previously reported on Metal Shock Finland, Swedish metallers WOLF will be releasing their own brand of absinthe, simply called Wolf Absinthe on 1st June 2013. The release party for the mind-blowing spirit will take place on founding member Niklas Stålvind’s 40th birthday in Örebro, Sweden, where the band was born 1995.
Vocalist Niklas Stålvind now comments:
”We got the idea two years ago when we wrote the song ”Absinthe” for the ”Legions of Bastards” album. Since then this little embryo of an idea has turned into a green manalishi. We are very proud to say that this product is the real deal. It’s a top notch Absinthe made by the award winning Santka Annas Distillery who is known for making the best absinthe in the world.”
”What’s so cool about absinthe is that it’s not like any alcohol beverage. It’s surrounded by myths and rituals and has been banned from most countries until recently. It’s associated with artists like Van Gogh, who supposedly drank it and lost both his mind and his ear. It’s something mysterious, something forbidden. And it happens to be very tasty when you prepare it the right way, and here’s where the rituals of absinthe drinking are still alive.”
”Other bands have their red wine and such and that’s fine… But when it comes to the band with the coolest product – I guess we won,” says Niklas laughing.
The Wolf Absinthe
has an alcohol content of 66.6% and is described and featured on absinthes.com
“Wolf Absinthe is a project by a heavy metal band called WOLF – the idea of having their own absinthe has interested this group for a while, after all artists have always had this special attraction to absinthe.
In this absinthe, you will find floral notes and the taste of wormwood, anise and fennel (of course!), and a hint of coriander.”
WOLF is currently working on their seventh studio album which will be recorded later this year.
For most parts of the world you will be able to order the Wolf Absinthe
