    2 Brands

    I have tried two brands, Lucid and Kubler. Lucid comes from France, and Kubler from Switzerland. They are supposed to be the best that can be purchased in the U.S. I'd like to see what some Europeans have to say about these two. It is certainly strong stuff, and I love drinking...

    I absolutely hate black licorice,

    but I love the taste of absinthe. It's especially nice in a Death in the Afternoon, where the champagne really opens up all the flavors and botanicals inside the absinthe.

    I really like sipping it...slowly enjoying it, savoring the quiet and clarity. So, now that it's legal I went on the hunt. I had wondered if it had lost some of the magic when it became legal.  The whole thing of finding the right, smokey little step down bar, on the right...

    Smashed, Hammered, Drunk, Pissed Whatever People Are Calling It These Days
