My buddy and his wife brought some over on Saturday night, where 7 of us enjoyed a few double shots. My first thought was that it was extremely bitter smelling (smells almost like black licorice) and the taste was not something to yern for. However, the traditional sense of enjoying an absinthe drink is to mix 3 or 4 parts with Ice cold water and a sugar cube to distile some of the bitterness of the drink. Once done - the liquid turns from an emerald green color to a milky white. The bottle we had was something to the effect of 68% alcohol per volume or something insane like that. It left you feeling pretty good but no one started seeing fairy's or anything of the like (tripping). Not sure how much you would have to drink or maybe my tolerance is just too high (I had 6 beers, a full bottle of Shiraz and 3 12oz Grey and Cran's the night before and was just getting my buzz on). Anyways, have any of you tried or experienced this liquor?
