National Absinthe Day is all about celebrating the delicious green liquor and raising a glass to its fascinating history. Over the years, absinthe cocktails have become a favorite of artists and writers, even gaining a reputation for inducing hallucinations. Though some of the legends may be more fiction than fact, these wildly tasty absinthe shots are proof of absinthe’s potent power.
Last but not least, we have the deliciously deadly Death Drop. To make these death-defying absinthe shots, mix equal parts vodka, tequila, absinthe, and 151 proof rum with ice, then strain into a shot glass. Make sure you drink responsibly though, these seriously live up to their name. View Recipe
