Absinthe is already annoying

Ok, is it just me or is the influx of absinthe cocktails bugging you too? I’ve seen them everywhere, from Absinthe Brasserie in SF to the Fireside Lounge in Alameda. I get that one of the main US producers of the stuff is right here in the East Bay, so that’s a proud note for us, I guess. It just seems like a watered-down spirit that the masses are going to go to town on.

Oh dear…you don’t think…you don’t think they’d make absinthe mojitos do you? Shoot me. Before you do that, tell me your thoughts on absinthe and if you’ve tried some good cocktails around town. Also read Barbara Hernandez’s informative story, which ran yesterday.
