    1. Hi liltamby5,

      Anisette Brasserie sells a variety of Absinthe Cocktails. You might get some ideas from their bartenders. Enjoy~

      1. Johnny's in highland park has it.

        1. I've had it once. You have this special spoon where you place a small sugar cube on it and slowly pour cold water over it until the cube dissolves completely into the glass of absinthe.

          1. Coles downtown has it. They make "Death in the Afternoon" which was Ernest Hemingway's signature drink. http://colesfrenchdip.com/
