I've heard numerous myths about green fairy sightings whenever absinthe was involved, so I wasn't sure what to expect. The taste, (very similar to green NyQuil), wasn't my favorite part; however the overall experience was pretty awesome, and it went something like this: the shots of Lucid Absinthe were poured over a sugar cube, which was then lit on fire and melted into the green liquor. After that, a spicket of water was opened just enough to allow a little bit of water to drip into each glass, in order to dilute the drink.. the cocktail was then consumed, and let me just tell you... I don't remember seeing any green fairies, but perhaps that's because I don't remember much of anything at all! This stuff is pretty crazy, and I only had one shot! I do recall the food to be excellent though, and the decor simply swiped me off my feet...
Still trying to figure out if this whole absinthe buzz was a fluke. I'm going back on Friday to investigate. Won't you join me?
