Two Fridays ago for the cocktail hour, I opened up the new Food & Wine: Cocktails 2013 and found the Turn of the Century by Maxwell Britten of Maison Premiere in Brooklyn. Maison Premiere is an oyster bar with an emphasis on Champagne and absinthe, and from their two dozen absinthes, Maxwell selected Kübler to craft a variation of the 20th Century.
