After careful study, i purchased my bottle of correct absinthe, sugar cubes, and a spoon. By my second drink a found the fairy's wonderful buzz, quite different from other alcoholic beverages. It reminds me of smoking herb in a rose wood pipe. Of course my technique is very crude now but I am sure it will evolve. Thank you Absinthe Fever for helping me along the path.

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.
