I brought dh some Absinthe back from Magaluf. It's is really strong stuff. Just wondered if anyone has had it and what you could use as a mixer with it?

When DH first tried it, he swears he saw pixies coming out of the wallpaper.

I didn't.

Isn't having absinthe with a mixer rather defeating the object?

'A lighter fuel and tonic for me please, barman. With ice and a slice.'

We have been drinking it on it's own but I could barely breathe after one sip. Something has got to go in it otherwise it's going to last us 20 years!

somebody told me once some apple juice and ice went well with it, but i've never tried it!!

Laudanum and a slim volume of bad verse?

ha ha Snafu! I once drank a glass and was immediately so terrified I'd hallucinate that I drank about a litre of water as a chaser to try to dilute it. Err, pointless!

I thought that the stuff they make now doesn't have the wormwood in it,which is the hallucinogenic ingredient? I've got a lovely antique absinthe glass and a special silver spoon with holes in it to burn the sugar on. Very pretty.
