It's been years since I've had a good cocktail.  I've always wanted to try "Suicide in the Afternoon" and was talking to a bartender friend of mine about absinthe.

Can't wait!

If there are any non-Catholic lurkers here, I'll bet they're thinkin' that "Trad Catholics are a bunch of fools who only talk about alcohol".[Image: afraidsmiley.gif]But hey, the Jews called Jesus a drunkard as well, I believe.

Three things Catholics recognize that Baptists don't:

1.  The perpetual virginity of Mary.

2.  Papal infallibility.

3.  Each other at the State Liquor Store.

P.S.  IMHO, this beat Et cum spirit 2-2-0 anyday.

Hilarious Colbert Report!  :) 

I had occation to try absinthe for the first time recently and I have to say...   ewwwww.  I wasn't prepared for that taste at all.  I do actually enjoy good black licorice as a candy, but as a drink??  Yuck.  I have tried Uzo, and Yagerneister, and I don't particularly care for them either.  Maybe it was the color of the absinthe that threw me...  that soft green hue, cloudy from the ice water and disolved sugar...  it looks like it should taste like a mohito!

Anyway, no thanks, my first time will be my last time.  Give me a fine single-barrel bourbon anyday.
