MATA HARI ABSINTHE

IMG_4198

After a nearly one hundred year prohibition, absinthe has made its return to the United States. The infamous spirit is once again able to be enjoyed by citizens across the country, however, not all absinthes are created equal. The absinthe most people have been associated with is the French style drink. Characterized by a heavy anise (known to us as dark licorice) flavor, these absinthes are generally enjoyed only in the traditional ritual, with water and a little sugar, or maybe as a bitters substitute in a limited range of cocktails. Enjoyed in these more pure ways, absinthe, while exciting and delicious has limited its appeal and reach only to those who enjoyed the anise flavor. Bohemian style absinthe however, does not hail from France. In the case of Mata Hari absinthe, this bohemian recipe comes from Austria and has been in the Fischer family since 1881. Mata Hari has the same natural green color, grande wormwood(the subject of the controversy that led to the banning of absinthe) and louche effect of French style absinthe, but that is where her deception ends. The much less anise heavy taste leaves a far more desirable flavor when enjoyed in the traditional ritual or in one of the many cocktails that can be created with Mata Hari. Grab a bottle of Mata Hari today and be sure to see some of the excellent cocktails that can be made with the first and only Bohemian absinthe available in the United States, or enjoy it in the traditional ritual.
