Gotta Drink 'Em All! Cocktails for #010 Caterpie through #018 Pidgeot

#012: Butterfree

You put in the work, and now your Metapod has blossomed into a beautiful Butterfree. Its psychic powers are sure to help you on your quest to be the very best, assuming you can resist them yourself.

For the Butterfree, we'll be adding some stun spores to the Metapod drink in the form of your hipster friend's favorite spirit: Absinthe.

To prepare the drink, rinse the glass in the spirit before adding the ice or vodka. Now, if you've never done this before, it's very easy. Add about a teaspoon of absinthe to your chilled rocks glass, and then swirl and twist the glass until the absinthe runs along the sides and the aroma is released. Although it's somewhat counterintuitive, less is often more with absinthe, as using too much will kill the spirit's stunning aroma. Sip, and try not to cry when you remember the Bye Bye Butterfree episode of the TV show.


Rinse a chilled rocks glass with absinthe. Add a large cube of tea-and-rosemary ice, and pour 1.5 oz of vodka over the cube.
