Absinthe strickly for mixing

By all means go with the 100 proof Herbsaint Original, it is made with whole herbs and is an absinthe substitute, as opposed to a pastis.
The 100 proof Herbsaint Original will work with just about any cocktail recipe that calls for absinthe.

Legendre Herbsaint in Spirits

Report from Sazerac Bar in the Roosevelt

Marion Legendre bottled his own pre-mixed Old Fashioned, back when he owned Legendre & Co.

BTW....The New Herbsaint does indeed taste like the Herbsaint of old, I sampled some at Tales, and it compares very well next to the vintage Herbsaint I have in my collection.
