Absinthe Cocktails is devoted entirely to cocktails made with absinthe. Since this spirit was legalized in the U.S. in 2007, the absinthe category has exploded with 34 new brands introduced in 2008. This book has something to suit everyone's taste—traditionalists will learn how to properly mix absinthe like an old pro with 30 recipes for classic cocktails, while modern absinthe lovers can experiment with 20 contemporary drink formulas from trendsetting bars such as Los Angeles's Varnish and the Lonsdale in London. Absinthe Cocktails gives going green an entirely new meaning!
