Absinthe FountainWe enjoy our whiskey, but today, March 5, is National Absinthe Day, so BourbonBlog.com shares a few recipes made with Lucide Absinthe as we’re visited by the Green Fairy.

Lucid Absinthe Supérieure was developed by renowned absinthe historian and distiller Ted Breaux which was the first genuine absinthe to be approved for distribution within the U.S since 1912.

Lucid, naturally green in color, is distilled entirely from spirits and whole European herbs and uses no artificial additives, oils or dyes.

Lucid begins with a full measure of Grande Wormwood (Artemesia absinthium), Green Anise, Sweet Fennel, and other culinary herbs representative of European traditions and historical absinthe crafting.
