Absinthe Orinaire or Herbsaint for cocktails??

Ali G | Aug 15, 201511:00 AM     4

I'm looking for an inexpensive absinthe for making cocktails - mostly Sazeracs, a few tiki drinks and other cocktails that sound interesting. Since I probably won't be sipping it and most recipes call for a rinse or small amount of absinthe, I'd rather not spend $60+ on a high end bottle.

I can find the 90 proof Herbsaint for about $20 and Absinthe Ordinaire for $23 on sale. Does anyone have an opinion on which way to go? Which would be more versatile in cocktails?
