I got a visit from the green fairy! Or as close as I’ll get in the states. The Publik Draft House in Atlanta is connected to the Fabulous Fox theatre and serves up a full Absinthe menu. The bar man suggested I try the La Muse Verte which the menu describes as “star anise, seed anise fennel sage, hyssop, thyme and licorice root”. He then prepared it in the French ritual, dripping water through a flamed sugar cube and into the absinthe so it turned a milky white. It might not be an every drink, but it’s fun to take a trip back in time.
