From a taste of its colorful history to a taste of the green drink itself, experience the allure of absinthe, this once forbidden beverage. Absinthe has long had cultural associations with vampire subculture, and a historical tradition as a medicinal preventative for malaria, a blood-borne disease.
As a complement to the Everhart’s current exhibition The Blood is the Life: Vampires in Art & Nature, this unique program featured a presentation by our cocktail and food expert Rosemary Gownley and anise-flavored foods prepared by Michael Colarusso, of Colarusso’s Coal-fired Pizza Restaurant. This event was held Wednesday evening, April 24th, beginning at 7:00 pm andwas limited to ages 21 and older. Photo of absinthiana provided by the Southern Food and Beverage Museum, New Orleans, LA.
Many thanks to our event sponsors for making this program possible: Dr. and Mrs. Patrick Grady
