Fairy Grandmother

Image

Simply put, this is the best thing I drank all week. Dainty and petal pink, this high-end shot (though I sipped it like a cocktail) went down all-too-easily at the Grand Marnier & Navan Summit welcome party. Maybe it was the tequila, the Grandma 100, or maybe the altitude—upon which we blamed everything that weekend—but as the absinthe crackled over the ice, you could just barely make out a little green-winged fairy’s laughter. That is, if you had too many. Damn you, fairy.
