Finally, a real pro. I am gonna email this to the sugar burning bartender at the restaurant beneath my office. Thanks, PV.

The "holy trinity of wormwood, fennel and star anise"?
While it could have been much worse, he might have noted that sugar was optional and actually watered it 3:1. Still, not bad and not fire.

That should be required viewing for bartenders everywhere. Simple, correct and to the point. Right now only PDT, Pegu club and L'Absinthe seem to know how to properly make a glass.

Wish it was cheaper. Anything drinkable is $13 a glass or more, at least in bars and restaurants here (Jade Nouvelle Orleans is $21 a glass at L'Absinthe, ouch!). Better to just stay home and make it yourself.

At least they got that part right in the NY Times article.

Quite a few places in DC serve it correctly as well. Nice to see.

Didn't you say that DC has a fire code? Certainly wouldn't think that crowd looks down on burnt sugar for theater's sake. Nor good taste.
