Absinthe is a well-known favorite spirit of renowned artists and literary giants such as Van Gogh, Edgar Allen Poe and Oscar Wilde. Since this spirit is once again available in the United States, it has seen a surge in popularity as the authentic way to add a touch of history to classic cocktails. The magical aura of this spirit fits in perfectly with St. Patrick’s Day with its greenish hue.
