I'm looking for a small-ish bottle of good absinthe, in DC, somewhere metro-accessible. By Friday. Oh, and I don't want to spend more than $30 or $40. Please hope me? (I don't care for it myself, this will be a gift.)

OK, head management question ... Kids away, new man, gift bottle of Absinthe from Parisian friends. Is it the 'right' nectar for a romantic evening? We are, um, experienced drinkers dying to try it ... on the other hand, we want to create the right, you know, buzz. Will this do it? How do we cook it?
