Cognac Cocktails: The “Tremblement De Terre” Or “Earthquake” Was Invented By Toulouse-Lautrec And Is Half Absinthe And Half Cognac

The innovation of the cocktail known as the Earthquake or Tremblement de Terre is ascribed to Toulouse-Lautrec, a strong mix bearing half absinthe and half cognac. This is made in a wine glass, three parts Absinthe along with three parts Cognac occasionally over ice cubes or shaken with a cocktail shaker filled up with ice.

Try a lower alcohol absinthe such as a Swiss La Bleue or Pernot White Fairy.

Dose both half volumes according to mood and combine in a brandy snifter. Swirl well to avoid eye-tearing.  An ice cube and a splash of water will be a welcome addition.

Alternatively, recent research has shown that this cocktail benefits by being prepared in an absinthe glass and dosed with cold water, as one would prepare a traditional absinthe. Quite drinkable!
