Since I have to wake up at the crack of dawn for work every morning, I’m usually very adamant about going to bed before midnight. However, I do make exceptions for “special nights” – nights where something so cool and yummy occurs, I would feel regretful the next day/week/month if I missed out.
Last night was one that could be classified as a “special night”.
I’ve only tried Absinthe once before during one crazy summer in Europe, and that was in its pure form, which led to a fairly ridiculous night. Game on Boston!
Stop #1: Stoddard's Fine Food & AleAll the Absinthe aficionados met up at Stoddard’s for the first leg of a soon to be long night. We started off with a Sazerac (rye whisky, simple syrup, Pernod Absinthe, bitters, garnished with a lemon twist) which was served with half shelled Island Creek Oysters. The oysters were tasty, but I thought the Sazerac was a bit too aggressive alcohol-wise
