The topic for February is Absinthe. That much maligned, misunderstood, mistreated spirit, suddenly plentiful again in the US and other parts of the world. Absinthe played a role, whether large or small, in a variety of great cocktails from the 1800's and early 1900's - the Sazerac, Absinthe Suissesse, Corpse Reviver No. 2... I'm getting thirsty.
So let's celebrate absinthe's history, and it's future, with all manner of cocktails using absinthe.
Here's how to participate:
- Find or concoct a recipe using absinthe as an ingredient.
- Make the drink and write about it. Include the recipe, ideally a photo, and something about how you liked (or didn't like, or tweaked, or...) the drink. If you don't have a blog, you can submit your recipe on the eGullet Spirits and Cocktails forum.
- Include in your post the MxMo logo and a link back to both Mixology Monday and Thinking of Drinking. And once the round-up is posted, a link to that summary post would be most appreciated (thanks for that idea, Frederic).
- Post a link to your submission in the comment section here, or send an email to sonjakassebaum (at) gmail (dot) com.
And if you want to learn more about the history of absinthe, here are some links.
Cheers and see you on the 22nd!

Thanks for hosting. I had a fun time with this MxMo post on absinthe. Plus it gave me a perfect excuse to go out and buy a new bottle of bitters.
The cocktail I wrote about is a twist on the Sazerac and is called The Latin Quarter.
Here's my recipe for THE FLEMING...
I made you one of these tall drinks last fall.
It's one of my favorite drinks that call for Sirène.

I just came across the Mixology Monday website - it's great! I've just written a post on Absinthe Salon in Sydney - talking about absinthe myths and the great absinthe champion Ted Breaux from New Orleans along the way.
I'm not a mixologist per se, so I'm not sure whether or not my post would qualify for MiMo... Anyway, here's the link in case you find it interesting:
Lots of great stuff over in Spirits & Cocktails at eG Forums, including absinthe-forward blasts like Wax, Green Rum Punch, and the Mud In Your Eye, as well as lighter libations like the Absinthe Martini, the Martha, and the Tailcoat. Read more here:
Thanks to Sonja for hosting!
