Movie Stars, Green Fairies, and more…

So I’m in LA for the weekend. Everyone who knows me knows I’m not a big fan, but maybe it’s because I just haven’t found the right cocktail bar — until last night. We went downtown to The Edison, a renovated power plant that looks like you’ve just stepped into Baz Lurhmann’s Moulin Rouge. I was waiting for Nicole Kidman to come down from the ceiling, but instead, we saw girls dressed up as green fairies wheeling around absinthe carts. I still haven’t tried Absinthe, the drink with the kryptonite glow. After writing about it’s hallucinegenic effects in Wine Spirits Quarterly, I’m a little bit of a scared-y cat, even though the new recipe has been tweaked to be less harmful. Still, I settled for the bar’s signature sip:

The Edison
Lavender-Honey infused Woodford Reserve Bourbon
Pear liqueur
Fresh pear juice

I have to say, with this drink, I think I’m over the whole pear craze. It’s become a little too sweet for me and its time for a new favorite flavor. Stay tuned…
