    Which do you use - Absinthe or Herbsaint when making Cocktails?

    Which do you use most often and which brands do you prefer?

    Absente, Lucid, Herbsaint - have bottles of all three. For cocktails, I cannot tell the difference at the volumes used.

    Frankly I like the fact that Absente comes in small bottles so I don't feel like I'll have an albatross on the shelf for years (like my second 750 of Pernod did).

    Lately, I've been using the Corsair Red Absinthe. Has Hibiscus in it, interesting flavor.

    Have been using Herbsaint in my sprayer and dropper for a while now. The 100 proof is a big bottle (a liter I think) and so it is going to last a while...

    If there is a drink that calls specifically for more than a glass rinse or dash of absinthe to be used I will go get the absinthe.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…
