Lucid Absinthe Tasting at Wisdom — April 13

Lucid Absinthe

Photo by David Anthony Provost

Great news for all you absinthe lovers out there.  Wisdom will play host to a Lucid tasting and mixology class on Wednesday, April 13.  Whether you are an absinthe connoisseur or just looking to try it for the first time, this will be a great place to learn and experiment.

After over 95 years of an absinthe ban here in the United States, on March 5, 2007, Lucid was finally given the “OK” by the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau.  It was the first genuine absinthe to become available (legally) in the U.S. since 1912.

The tasting will include one traditional absinthe serving which will follow the French method listed below and TWO unique absinthe cocktails.

French method:

  1. Pour 1.5 oz into appropriate absinthe glass
  2. Place flat absinthe spoon on top of glass
  3. Place sugar cube on top of spoon
  4. Slowly drip chilled water over sugar until cube is completely dissolved into absinthe
  5. Enjoy

Catoctin Creek Tasting. Success!

It was an evening filled with fun, food, people and prizes. Josh was slinging drinks like a mad man and lighting citrus peels on fire – he knows all the tricks. All in all everyone had a fabulous time…and we have photos to prove it. A special thanks to Smorgie for both their support and this excellent photo set on Flickr.
