Absinthe Recipes

Fire Absinthe Preparation.jpgWe all know the traditional Absinthe Fountain method of louching. But wouldn't it be fun if there were more recipes for mixing your absinthe? I have compiled a list of recipes that are actually very good. The worst part about compiling this list of recipes was trying every one ;) I will stress that absinthe is a VERY powerful drink, and like any alcoholic beverage, should always be enjoyed in moderation.
