Death in the Afternoon is a cocktail created by Ernest Hemmingway, famous for his writing as well as his drinking, so I have a feeling this cocktail will do the trick.

Death in the Afternoon
1 jigger of Absinthe
Add iced Champagne
A small amount of sugar can be used to round it out,
especially when using a verte absinthe
Hemmingway recommended drinking 3 to 5 of these slowly. I do not recommend that.
