Re: absinthe - scary drink!

such lovely packaging though.

I'll stick with dry white wine, champagne or gin.

Hey MeanChico, you might like this cocktail that they have been serving all summer at one of my favorite local restaurants:

Vieux-Carré absinthe, fresh lemon, citrus syrup, orange bitters, sparkling wine

They serve it ice-cold in a tall champagne flute. Very refreshing, and so far I haven't been seeing any crazy colors or speaking in tongues or climbing trees nude or paying $50 for the Japanese version of Not Music or any crazy junk like that.
