well here i go i had my first experience of absinthe at the weekend and i am supremely amazed it was one night of neat spirit indulgence and i ended up on a different plane happy i was to be there for sure i do not like being drunk but i love to be in a state lucid intoxication which is where i found myself my companions ( who were drinking beer ) fell away as i soared ! i have now ordered glasses - spoons - genuine absinthe i will continue my journey in the proper manner ! i intend to acquire a fountain in the new year onwards and upwards ;-)

Absinthe ritual of La Louche
'It is healthy,' declares this classic Absinthe Cusenier poster that depicts a suitably well-fed gent performing the traditional absinthe ritual. The lady at the window is transfixed!

About the absinthe ritual

Absinthe.se is one reliable website that has a short how-to guide to the classic French ritual. They resolutely condemn (and refuse to provide instructions for) the modern-day "fire method".

Instructions for both rituals -- the traditional French one and the recent fire one -- are available at DrinkNation.com.
