Where to Find Absinthe in Westchester
Called la fée verte, or the green fairy, absinthe inspired great minds of the 19th and 20th centuries. It might just spur your next over-drinks deal.
Absinthe Fountain at Pour
241 E Main St, Mount Kisco
At Pour (shown above), they specialize in serving absinthe in the classic drip method. Try two-ounce pours of three varieties, including Delaware Phoenix’s Blues Cat, made in New York.
Southside Sazerac at Saint George Bistro
This classic Big Easy cocktail — rye whiskey, raw sugar, bitters, and absinthe — fits perfectly into Saint George’s chic, Old World bistro vibes (pressed-tin ceilings and antique mirrors, anyone?).
The Ginny Red at Gleason's
Gleason’s mixes several absinthe drinks. In addition to the seasonal Ginny Red, made with Greenhook Ginsmiths gin, cherry heering, and Pinot Noir, a Sazerac and vermouth-based Chrysanthemum are always on the menu.
