Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder! These absinthe cocktails deliver an herbal kick, and are sure to liven up the party!


I had previously written about a once-in-a-lifetime trip I had taken to the French Riviera in another post. I was happy to go into detail about the little shop I popped into that sold craft olive oils and vinegars. What I forgot to mention was I also ducked into the business nextdoor. A French absinthe bar. We grabbed a little table and enjoyed absinthe the old fashioned way: little glasses, flaming sugar cubes, and quantities slightly more than necessary for the middle of the day! If drinking absinthe almost straight up isn’t your thing, try your hand with one of these absinthe cocktails.
