Mouthwash of the GODS!
You can get good stuff these days, if it is prepared correctly I love it. Most marked absinthe is flavored with concentrates and green food dye, if you get the proper Pernod absinthe you will love it.
It's ok, not crazy about it. Of course, I've never had "proper" absinthe, just the legal watered-down version you get in some "alternative" bars.
Abs in the what?
What FlatterToDeceive said. The proper stuff is wonderful, but I guess it's not a protected name because a lot of crap gets sold as absinthe that bears no resemblance. The former is one of the nicest drinks I've ever had, the latter is one of the worst.
does it taste like licorice? Wasn't that the stuff the old poets and writers or the theater crowd drank back in the late 1700s early 1800s in England? Maybe I'm thinking of something else.
I've never tried, but I would love to.
I've never tried it.....can you describe it?
Haven't tasted it yet....definitely will try if I come across some :) <br />
I love tasting different spirits, liquors, wines, and beers
