So, no, I didn’t drink a ton of absinthe. Although between the two of my friends (Carol Ann, who’ve I’ve been friends with since 7th grade and Amy whom I’ve been friends with since 3rd grade) we tried quite of few different drinks. One GREAT drink I tried was a tequila rum drink with strawberries, basil leaves, balsamic vinegar and other concoctions that were unknown to me. Amy had a gin drink (which she usually hates) with wildflower liquer, tabasco sauce, pepper and a jalapeno on the side. Oh yes. Quite delicious. Spicy, but so good. Gotta love Texas.
