Despite its mythical connections to insanity and criminality, absinthe is once again legal in America, and has been since 2007. What have we been missing out on? This anise flavored and often high-proof spirit has more fans than ever due to some amazing new productions from distillers all over the world. Try it in a Sazerac or Death in the Afternoon, or maybe a classic Absinthe Drip. You are safe in a Hooch Bartender’s hands as we recommend the very best absinthe on the market.
