By this point of the night, I was already feeling a bit tipsy (Absinthe is rather strong and I’m not a seasoned drinker anymore) and a bit worried (as Stoddard's was only the first stop). Luckily, we had this bad boy deliver us straight to the next location!
Stop #2: Russell House Tavern
I had heard quite a bit of positive chatter about Russell House Tavern from the blog-o-sphere so I was really pumped that this was our second pit stop. The first drink here was called Carlito’s Tears (Milagro Tequila, Pernod Absinthe) and this was paired with a chilled jumbo shrimp and honeydew melon dish. The lightness of the shrimp and honeydew was a great foil to the heaviness of the drink.

The final stop of this “foray” took me to Drink, a South Boston hotspot well-known by cocktail connoisseurs for its custom blend drinks and intimate comfortable setting. There was no waiting around at this Milk & Honey-esq bar (which was surprisingly packed for a random Tuesday night) – all the libations were already set out for our party! My favorite was the strawberry syrup infused absinthe cocktail topped with an egg white foam – certainly the most eclectic drink of the night.
