Default Bought and am drinking some Absinthe

[actually - absente. I'll explain. Absente uses most of the same ingredients as Absinthe, with the major difference being the type of wormwood used. They use a southern wormwood, which is a little less potent than the real wormwood, and a little less bitter. I've had one glass of this so far and I'm already pretty smashed - I wonder if I'll hallucinate? I hope so :x: If we like this stuff pretty well, we're going to import some REAL Absinthe from Europe and see how that goes. This stuff is 110 proof.)]

Box:



Bottle:



You start by pouring 3 oz. in a glass:



Then, using the Absinthe spoon (pictured), place it across the glass and put a sugar cube on top. Then pour 3 oz. water over the sugar cube and stir. This is what it looks like when you're done:

Let me guess, you heard about it last summer either in Maxim or posted here on Nasioc (as a result of someone else having read about it in Maxim)?

I've known about this stuff for years, saw it in the Perfect Drug video. My question is, where did you get it?

Negative - a friend tried some legal Absinthe when we were in New Orleans during early April '03. Then he told me what it was all about.

Then I read about it in Maxim during May or something.

It's interesting how about 20 people here have tried it since the article in Maxim last summer.

My friend made his own absinthe. The real deal is illegal almost everywhere now. The real deal being absinthe containing wormwood.

What is wormwood? And why would it be illegal?

"Wormwood had been used medicinally since the Middle Ages, primarily to exterminate tapeworm infestations while leaving the human host uninjured and even rejuvenated by the experience. At the end of the 18th century -- the age of revolution and skeptical humanism -- the herb developed a recreational vogue. People discovered they could get high off it. The problem was the means of delivery, as it was unacceptably bitter in taste."

Bitter seems like too light of a word to explain it

Wormwood, Artemisia Absinthium has been used for centuries as a moth repellant, general pesticide and as a tea/spray to repel slugs and snails. Before its' toxicity was known it was used as the name implies: a worming medicine for people and animals. . Historic references to wormwood go back as far as 1600 B.C. in Egypt. Wormwood leaves contain absinthin a substance which can be toxic to other plants. You may have heard of the alcoholic drink "absinthe" a green colored beverage that is now illegal in most countries. And rightfully so as it has been said that the painter Vincent van Gogh was imbibing of absinthe when he lopped off his ear to send to a woman. The absinthin being water soluble will wash off the leaves and leach into the soil interfering and stunting the growth of plants in close proximity to the wormwood.

Well one of our sources was obviously "imbibing" of absinthe while writing their article.

Inferior absinthe is generally adulterated with copper, which produces the characteristic green colour
