Lucid Absinthe Supérieure® is a unique spirit and some might think that using it is tricky! Not so! Here are some cocktail recipes as well as a link to the mixology contest the brand is sponsoring. You need to try at least one cocktail with Lucid. It’s unique flavor that will have you pausing with a WOW!!
Once a core ingredient in most classic cocktails, absinthe was banned in the United States for 95 years. Following efforts by research scientist turned distiller T. A. Breaux, the ban was repealed in 2007, and Lucid Absinthe Supérieure became the first authentic absinthe to be legally sold in the US.
Here are 3 different recipes including the winning cocktail for 2017! And they all look amazing!!

Even if you only try one of these, you might want to nibble on something. I asked the brand’s representative and she suggested seafood– especially OYSTERS!!
This is what was served in New Orleans for an Absinthe brand event:
oysters served with a dash of Absinthe and then lit!
This is easy enough if you get them from a fish monger or a supermarket with oysters and ask them to open the oysters and leave them intact!
These cocktails sound so terrific that I really want to try something this weekend. Given the weather, it’s perfect timing!
