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 Following efforts by research scientist turned distiller T. A. Breaux, the ban was repealed in 2007, and Lucid Absinthe Supérieure became the first authentic absinthe to be legally sold in the US.

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!

  1. Absinthe is very popular now. I am not a big fan, but the coffee drink might convince me. Interesting combos here. Cheers!!

  2. Lucid is amazing! I think that coffee drink is one to test drive. It caught my interest too.
