Another good blog to keep up with general absinthe news (besides InAbsinthia of course!) is Lucid Absinthe's blog. While naturally centered on their brand(s), they also do a good job of more general absinthe news and notes. A recent post featured founder and absinthe chef Ted Breaux in pictures and words, while another one shows a couple classic absinthe-related paintings and quotes, including this beautiful one from Dowson's classic "Absinthia Taetra":

The man had known the obscure night of the soul, and lay even now in the valley of humiliation… But for a little while he had forgotten. - Ernest Downson (1867-1900), “Absinthia Taetra”

Absinthe t-shirt

Very cool looking t-shirt, with a wonderfully decadent and florid design. Wonder what kind of absinthe she has poured?

Absinthe Salon

And here is a link to aforementioned Absinthe Salon. As far as we know, there are no places locally that specialize in absinthe, although I do believe there are a few places that have fountains and serve absinthe. We have been to bars that serve absinthe sans the fountain, but that isn't quite the same, is it?

Sounds like a business opportunity to me!

Absinthe setup
Interesting article on visiting the first "dedicated" absinthe bar in Australia, called The Absinthe Salon in Sydney. She tries 3(!) absinthes and wants to try more, but is dissuaded from that mistake. I don't know about you, but even three absinthes are more than enough for us. But it was a nice selection of absinthes, from Francios Guy to Eichelberger and finally wrapping it up with a favorite here at InAbsinthia, Jade's Edouard.

Thankfully, the writer avoids most of the clichés and correctly describes the process, with nary a mention of flames. It is unfortunate that it uses the absinthe / absent homophone, but what can you do?

Rachel Maddow makes one of Michael's favorite cocktails, the Corpse Reviver #2. He likes to use Kübler Absinthe, but Rachel uses one of Jonathan's favorite U.S. absinthes, St. George. We might add more than 2 drops, but have no doubt, it is a great cocktail.
