How to Drink Absinthe (not for Dummies)
We were originally going to call this post "Absinthe for Dummies," but then we remembered two things. One was that we freaking hate the whole "for Dummies" thing. Two was that absinthe is definitely NOT for dummies - it's a varsity drink, to say the least. (You know - JV drinkers are the ones who only go on benders on St. Patrick's day and their bachelor party. Varsity drinkers are something else entirely. You know who you are.)
Anyway, Rick over at Martini Groove put together some nice links on how to drink absinthe and really enjoy it, including how to pick the right bottle, avoid the nasty shite, and decide which ritual you like to do. We say try 'em all, but our note from watching someone else do it on a fateful night - don't drink it from the bottle.
