That’s right, folks. I’m officially back in the saddle and ready for another tasty tipple. This one calls for a new client of mine—Pernod Absinthe. I discovered it while perusing the internet & found it comes from mixologist Stephen Cole of the Violet Hour in Chicago. I’ve heard such great things about the Violet Hour—it’s definitely a can’t-miss bar in Chi-town. I haven’t had a chance to try this one yet but I’m truly intrigued.
