Preparing your Absinthe

Started by Captain Denvo Pryde. Last reply by Philip Allan Brian Drew Jun 16, 2014. 11 Replies

So how does everyone prepare their Absinthe. I typically use a 3.5:1 with a cane sugar cube, and I never flame it. So how does everyone else prepare theirs.Continue

Looks like things have been a little quiet around here.  All off enjoying the green nectar hopefully.  I quite agree with Mr. Carr - as I do try to enjoy every absinthe I have tried.  As it is the ritual, and the sense of timelessness, that I most enjoy. And while I have varied with assorted cocktails made with absinthe, it is always the simple louche that I return to time and time again.

“A glass of absinthe is as poetical as anything in the world, what difference is there between a glass of absinthe and a sunset.”

I think enjoying Absinthe, like so many other things, is subjective. I must be one of those unrefined blockheads that Absinthe/wine connoisseurs roll their eyes and shake their heads about. I try to find something good about each and every louche set before me. At the end of the day it is the Absinthe experience that I enjoy. The lovely way it whips my thoughts into a delicate froth. Some of my best poetry was written with a louche or two on board. I don’t remember the brand of Absinthe I was drinking but I will always remember the verses.

Very pleased to find this group. I am currently working my way down a bottle of Apsinthion De Luxe, originating in Poland, however I suspect it is not terribly good. anyone else tried this?

I live on Vancouver Island, and it seems that all the liquor stores sell Absinthe here. Maybe there are more Steampunkers than I thought??

I bought my first bottle of Absinthe today; I've had it before, but I prefer the kind I bought. It has quite an anise flavour to it, and when I added the water, it didn't turn cloudy as I thought it should have done. Anyway, it was made in the Czech Republic and is in a really skinny bottle!

I thought the french method brought out a salty taste I didn't care for.
