How to Survive National Absinthe Day

National Absinthe Day falls on March 5th this year and apart from obviously drinking in its honor, it's important to look and feel great for the occasion. Don green if you're feeling spirited and make sure to prep and pamper in green fairy fashion. Spritz on some eau de absinthe, make sure your breath is ready to take on the night, moisturize those hands that'll be all over cocktails all day long and make sure they look fab while you're sipping.
