For sure, my formal education let me down. Not until last night did I learn the screw part of a corkscrew is called a 'worm.'

The perfect crackie will be caramelized and crunchy on the bottom and sides, but soft in the middle and slightly craggy on top. If using water, crackies will be thinner and crunchier, but should still have a slight chewiness due to the xtra sugar content (this is essentially a brown sugar cookie w/added white sugar and spice).
1oz grand marnier
1/2 of a juicy lemon
½ tsp agave
3 splashes peychaud’s
Shake hard over ice. Strain into highball over rocks.
Optional club soda splash.
Optional vanilla infusion splash.

what up Wes-T.
I hear you are our resident expert on absinthe. I also hear that it was just legalized.
Can you recommend a good real bottle that I could easily pick up here in the city? I’m dying to try this stuff .. I have tried the artificial green licorice variety last time I was in greece and was underwhelmed. Is there anything available with real wormwood .. actually hallucinogenic?

How’s the eyeball business? Sorry I missed you the other week. I trust Tull was excellent.
I spent 1 night in London in the late 90s drinking the The Green Fairy with a few friends and by the end of the night we had all made up new names for ourselves and I woke up in someone else’s shirt. Since then, I’ve been obsessed.
