Absinthe adds a subtle anise flavor to these puddings, which are delicious with berries.
1 cup heavy cream
2/3 cup whole milk
2 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon unflavored powdered gelatin dissolved in 2 tablespoons of water
1 1/2 tablespoons absinthe
Fresh berries, for serving
In a medium saucepan, combine the cream, milk and sugar and bring to a simmer. Off the heat, whisk in the gelatin and absinthe.
Strain the mixture through a fine sieve into a pitcher and pour into six 4-ounce ramekins or bowls. Press a piece of plastic wrap directly onto the surface of the puddings and refrigerate until set, at least 6 hours. Serve with fresh berries.
The pots à l’absinthe can be refrigerated for up to 3 days.
