Yep, everybody tends to forget that absinthe is a high proof alcoholic beverage. The herbal flavour, and the chilled water, actually tend to mask the alcohol in real absinthe. In years gone by thujone was blamed for having an alleged pyshoactive effect. It is now thought that this is unlikely to be the case.
What are we left with? a refreshing high alcohol drink that will make you real drunk. What sets real absinthe apart - from say bourbon - is that you don't realise this as you drink it.
