Absinthe Rejuvenation. I’m Amanda Blue with the Blue Lifestyle Minute sponsored by CUISINART. Having garnered an infamous reputation thanks to both urban legend and legislation, Absinthe can still seem intimidating to approach. The drink of choice for writers and artists alike, Absinthe’s main flavor profile is that of anise, similar to middle eastern liquor like arak, or Greek ouzo. Usually high in alcohol content, it’s best to cut the drink, traditionally achieved by dripping water drop by drop on to a sugar cube above the glass on a slotted spoon,  which creates that milky green glow. ABSENTE Refined Absinthe Liquor is making excellent Absinthe out of France for around fifty dollars a bottle. The perfect time to try the infamous liquor is March 5, National Absinthe Day.
