Now for the cocktails!! Tis the season to be trying new spirits and I am just the person to bring them to you! The spirit of the day is Lucid Absinthe! Not your typical spirit/liqueur but something more extraordinary. Not everyone will like it but some will and that’s what you want– those who walk on the high wire of spirits!
