Some folks may cringe each time I use the term "Booze" regarding these high quality drinks.
I mean no offense. There are bottles of extraordinary booze out there. I've tasted a few. Relax.

I'm always late to the party, huh?

But I bring good news from the future past! I am doing an art show that is heavy on the absinthe imagery at one of the museums that turned me down years ago when I asked about my time travel photo shoot!

https://www.facebook...toriaswonderama

For those who don't dig Bookface, check this out: http://www.victoriamansion.org/

The private opening is tomorrow night and I will be educating folks on the history and correct preparation of absinthe. We'll be serving Lucid as they are paying for it and it was the best the local liquor store carried (I may bring a few other things though for comparison in case folks get really interested. I still have a bit of Walton Waters for example...).

Anyway, I am sorry I don't make it here too often, but I am so happy to see you are all doing well!

Cheers!

Retrogarde
The basic tools of the absintheur are essentially a spoon, glass, sugar cube, chilled water, and absinthe. None of the other objects are actually necessary to prepare the drink, but they are imperative for instigating a type of visual hypnosis and bringing richness to the ceremony.
