Craigie on Main
Though its hallucinogenic properties have long been disproved, we can't help but feel like a badass when we drink absinthe. While you might be hard-pressed to find your favorite watering hole serving it straight, there are plenty of cocktail tributes to la f�e verte out there, and first on our list is the "Improved Whiskey Cocktail" at Craigie on Main. Featuring a simple blend of Rittenhouse rye whiskey, maraschino, Angostura bitters, and absinthe, topped off with a little sweet syrup, this drink preserves the earthy, anise-scented soul of absinthe while dressing it up just a little with the sharp piercing taste of rye. No better way to find your modern-day muse.
