The Green Fairy hits Manhattan

Since its release, the 124-proof liquor has been rapidly worming its way behind the city’s bars. At the Waverly Inn, the Bank Street restaurant owned by Graydon Carter, diners can request an absinthe fountain, for drinking absinthe in the classical style (with drops of cold water added slowly to turn the absinthe milky and opalescent), or can try it mixed with gin and sour mix in the Absinthe Minded Martini.

Employees Only, the West Village lounge, has taken a similar tack, adding an Absinthe Drip to its menu and replacing the absinthe substitute in its signature Billionaire Cocktail with Lucid.

No word on the new absinthe's whore-making abilities....

Well you know, you need the right drinking companion for that to kick in...
