Celebrate Memorial Weekend or Gift Dad Great Cocktails with Absente Absinthe!

now known that current events have brought out many sides that were hidden in each one of us. There is the chef, the bartender, the teacher, the athletic, the artist…

There is no better way to celebrate all the dads out there that are part of the last category, than gifting the favorite drink of some of the most famous artists of the Belle Époque:  Absente, Absinthe Refined.

 

 

Absente, Absinthe Refined comes in a beautiful Van Gogh gift box ($50) which also includes the absinthe spoon, so that every dad can drink this infamous spirit in the most traditional way.

The traditional method of imbibing Absinthe is as follows:

 

In spite of its bitterness, Absente is relatively easy on the palate, thanks to the perfect balance of Wormwood, anise, mint and spices, which gives a sweet, fresh and slightly spicey taste.
Besides the traditional way, Absente, Absinthe Refined is also delightful on the rocks or in cocktails, such as Oaxacan Diplomat, made with Absente and mezcal.
