I realize I’m posting this a bit late, but TONIGHT at 7pm EST, join the crew in the Mixoloseum Bar chat to mix up some drinks with Mata Hari Absinthe.
If you’re new to drinking absinthe (and you probably are, since it’s only recently available in the US), this is a good one to get in on. The Mata Hari is a Bohemian style absinthe, which is significantly less absinthe-y than the other styles. It’s a dialed-down anise flavor (think black liquorice) makes it a little less intimidating to work with than, say, it’s neon-green brother La Fee Absinthe Parisienne. Not to say one is better or worse than the other, but a Bohemian style is a good place to start before jumping in to the deep end (flavor-wise).
Sadly, I won’t be able to be there. It’s The Other DrinkPlanner Guy’s birthday today (Happy Birthday buddy!), so we’ll be partying it up whilst the Mixo Crew is mixing things up in the chat. They’ll also have Gerry Fischer, master distiller for Mata Hari, on hand to answer questions about absinthe and all that good stuff. You should definitely join them even if it’s late, as they’ll most likely be going until the wee hours of the night.
OH, and there’s a PRIZE! The best drink of the night will get one of the amazing reproductions of a vintage cocktail book from Mud Puddle Books.

Hey Le Tournament Vert spammer…I’d love to talk about your product, send me a sample to try and I’ll do exactly that. But this is just too obvious…especially when all four of these comments only come from 2 different IPs.
