Mon dieu et sacre bleu! New Yorkers are sucking up "homemade absinthe" cocktails...based on an old favorite (Earthquake)

Louis XIII cognac + coat glass with "homemade absinthe" + set fire to absinthe + Iranian saffron oil + "high end ice cube" (from an ice sculpture) = The Icarus = $160

The dude that is making the cocktail says of absinthe that setting it alight "bring out the botanical notes of the fennell-based spirit and create a caramelized coating"

Sucking up? They use a straw (is it made with gold leaf perhaps) You're a native New Yorker you should know the score by now! Too Loose = La Fee Vertigo = troll.

Last statement is not correct, Prof. Unless our friend is now living on the other side of the pond. Anyhoo..sounds awfully vulgar!

Should tell the French that absinthe is now a fennell (sic) Foeniculum vulgare based spirit ;-)
