Absinthe

Recommended Posts

It is an alcoholic liquor made with wormwood. True absinthe is/was supposed to be toxic and supposedly resulted in quite a few famous writers and artists going nuts (inc Poe, Van Gogh, Manet & Picasso)

It gives quite a different buzz than alcohol, its green and the traditional way to drink it is poured over a sugar cube.

as far as I know it is illegal in almost every country except spain

Van Gogh, Manet & Picasso have all even painted men drinking it.

Yeah, i've only had it once, at my friend's place in Belgium, and the stuiff is illegal EVEN THERE :eek:

He got it in Switzerland, and the method of burning a spoonful of sugar into it is true.

I sure felt a lil trippy after drinking some. Smoke some herb with it too, if you can :smoke:;)

When wormwood is distilled Thujone comes out of it, thats the chemical that makes you hallucinate. And believe me when I tell you... there is nothing in this world worse than an absinthe hangover... and yes it tastes absolutely horrible. Its fun though... its legal in Spain, the czech republic and one other country that is slipping my mind.

BTW it tastes like shit. even poured over a sugar cube like your supposed to.

Do you know where on the WWW you can order it? I have looked for it, but cannot find it.

One of my buddies had it in Sweeden. Said it is unreal, so I wanted to try it.
