Are you still looking for a great cocktail idea for your friends and family get togethers over the next few days?

Here is a winner with one of my favorite beverage treats: Absinthe. Think Mojito or Mint Julep but New Orleans style!

This recipe comes from the Taste of Treme cookbook I recently received for review. You can read what I thought of the cookbook here. And it is a great town to party and have an awesome cocktail. Just stay away from the alcoholic fake slush machines, otherwise you will end up like me in a gift shop wrapping yourself with feather boas.
