In Pursuit of Absinthe

When on vacation I came across a article about how certain forms of Absinthe are no longer banned in the US. I am not really a drinker, but I have become intensely interested in a beverage that is also called the Green Fairy, one that turns from a shimmering green to a milky white with a cube of sugar. And while my 6 percent alcohol drinks make me tipsy, these at almost 70 percent...well, it just sounds like a crazy thing to want.

Today, my friend and I decided to scope it out and found, it is all sold out. How odd is that? The only drink I'm curious about seems to be impossible to find.

I walked out with a bottle of vodka for the party that comes in a mirror ball case. Very disco and hopefully appropriate for a party gift.

When I do find the Green Fairy, here's to hoping it's at least a half a percent as interesting as it's mythology.

You know what they say:

Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder.

...or gets you really, really hammered...

..it's one or the other.

Counting on the hammered before involving the heart. Hopefully it will make me heartless. I've always envied the Angelina types and their coolness.
