  1. Pour absinthe into a Champagne flute.

  3. Stir gently with a long spoon to blend the flavors, if desired, but avoid agitating the drink too vigorously to maintain the delicate effervescence.
  4. Serve the Death in the Afternoon cocktail immediately and revel in its unique combination of herbal notes from the absinthe and the lively sparkle of Champagne or sparkling wine.
