Banded in the U.S.

-- By  James in  Los Angeles, CA on Sun, 2 Oct 2016 at 00:36.

While on vacation in New Orleans recently on one of the walking cocktail tours. We were introduced to Absinthe Frappe and informed that at one time it was the only drink to have ever been banded in the United States for quite awhile until one of its main ingredient Arsenic was eliminated. Is this true?

Absinthe Bourgeois poster
The history of the absinthe drink is as fascinating as the taste of the emerald green liquor. This promotional poster for Absinthe Bourgeois is from the age of the first absinthe fever.
