The cocktail menu at Absinthe is rife with literary, historical, and personal references, making it one of the most fun to read in town. Of course, we recommend actually sampling from it, and note that the restaurant has a particularly lively selection of brunch libations available only on weekends.
Citron Lemonade (Hangar One Buddha's-Hand vodka, ginger syrup, lemon juice, ginger ale, and cranberry) is one such refresher. This drink is available in non-alcoholic form all week, where it's known as "Absinthe lemonade," but the weekends make it, well, a little more special.
Absinthe: 398 Hayes (at Gough), 551-1590.
