Which Are You More Afraid Of: Gin or Absinthe?

Over at, I have shared a recipe from Nate Quiroga of Liberty in Seattle. 

The drink seems to be a variation on the Aviation. Instead of gin, which is scary to some drinkers, Quiroga uses vodka. 

This plane is definitely crashingM

But the price you pay is that he also replaces the maraschino liqueur in the drink with absinthe. 

This leaves the drinker to decide whether they're more afraid of gin or more afraid of absinthe. 

Personally, I like 'em both. Get the recipe over at
