Every Thursday on the Good Food Blog we share a recipe from our archives.
Steve Livigni is the Director of Operations as La Descarga. Absinthe is an anise-flavored spirit made from wormwood and was once thought to be a highly addictive liquor that can cause hallucinations. In reality, it has a very high alcohol content. Traditional absinthe is 120-150 proof. Le Tourment Vert brand absinthe is 100 proof and is better suited for mixed drinks. Steve first shared this recipe for a Red, Hot and Bothered on October 17, 2009.
