There’s no time like the present to celebrate a cocktail with history.
Do so in style with Marielle Songy’s The Absinthe Frappé. The new book from the local author takes a peek at the backstory of absinthe, the early days of the drink and its first home — the Old Absinthe House, pictured — the bans and the myths, culminating in the story of the iconic New Orleans cocktail. Want more? The Garden District Book Shop and The Chicory House team up TONIGHT, Mon, April 17 at 6 p.m. to host a spirited pre-pub celebration featuring bites, Absinthe Frappés, a chat and a signing.
A sip for the ages.
