“Absinthe is the aphrodisiac of the self.” Or so says Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

Banned in the U.S. for nearly a century, absinthe’s relatively recent return to the market has made waves in the spirits world and beyond. It’s a libation shrouded in myth and mystique, blamed for causing everything from blindness to insanity. Here to discuss the lore behind “The Green Fairy”, as well as how it is made and served, is spirits expert Elayne Duke. We’ll taste through the wide range of Absinthe currently available on the US market, and discuss the many ways to enjoy them in classic and modern Absinthe cocktails such as: the Death in the Afternoon (favored by renowned boozer, Ernest Hemingway), the 4th Estate Cocktail, the Sazerac, and the Absinthe Flip.
