Sweet party last night at Brickyard in Boston-- all of Ted Breaux' varieties, and a few others. To get enough, employees ordered max qty for weeks... and there's lots left. They're going to win awards for work they do on the 'sinthe; not sure if they understand that... First class party with glasses, spoons, and even two fountains. The Edouard clearly contains Artemisia pontica in the seasoning herbs-- damn that Ted Breaux!
MANY thanks to the hosts for their warm hospitality!
