Absinthe strickly for mixing

tokyopix | Jun 23, 2012 06:16 PM

What absinthe do you use for cocktails? I'm having a hard time finding it here in Tokyo and want to pick up a bottle in the US next month. The thing is, I don't love the flavor so I will not be drinking this straight. I will only be using it in cocktails. So I don't want to over-spend on something that won't get a lot of use. At the same time I don't want to spoil nice ingredients with crappy absinthe. So, does anyone have a happy medium they like to keep around for cocktail making purposes?
