No Mess Monday- National Absinthe Day: N.Y.L.A. Alistair Booties


Dressed to Kil-tie

This weather is quite erratic these days. Mother Nature is throwing lots of mess our way (though we kinda earned it). With all that going on, though, who has time to deal with the shade thrown by office mates? Wear a pair of shoes that show you’re ready for whatever might come your way, like the Alistair bootie by N.Y.L.A. (available at for $59.75) The dark green color is fairly neutral, and the oxford styling says you can roll with the big boys. The kiltie detail and tassels on the laces are also totally on trend. The lug sole is all utility, but the 4.25 tapered heel adds some femininity.



Since Viridian Sprits has declared March 5th National Absinthe Day in celebration of the U.S. repealing the ban on absinthe 5 years ago today, hand your troubles over to the green fairy at happy hour tonight. A Lucid Martini, made from Lucid Absinthe and vodka will definitely be a quick fix. Be forewarned, there’s nothing sweet about it, but it’s definitely strong enough to make all feel right with the world for a bit. I doubt I have to warn you not to guzzle this one. Few would be able to if they tried. Still keep in mind that the green fairy can be a two faced friend.


1.5 oz Lucid Absinthe
2 oz vodka

In a cocktail shaker, add ice, Lucid Absinthe, and vodka. Shake vigorously and strain into a martini glass.
