An **** In A BottleA wile back I used to brew up home made Absinthe and bring some along to special parties. By the third round peoples clothes would begin to mysteriously fall off and things would deteriorate from there into an all out ****.
. I have not brewed up any in years, it was fun, due for a new batch.
Would get the wormwood and herb extract from Europe and mix it with Old Everclear 190 proof and dilute it to 140. When put into a glass and water is poured over a sugar cube in a slotted spoon the liquor louches, that is the herbal oils drop out of the alcohol and create a greenish cloudy drink. After the second you can see the green fairy who lives in the mist, the third hang on. A popular aphrodesiac and hallucionagenic European cocktail of the 1880s to 1920s that provided insperation to the likes of Picasso, Dali, Gertrude Stien, Talouse La Trec and Van Gogh.
Brewhaus.com has the extract and only a few bucks compared to $45 for the imported stuff if you can find it..... tempting
