www.alandia.de - good service, and they even sent an absinthe "kit" - the silver spoon, an absinthe glass, and sugar wafers to use on the spoon. I'll report back after I go to class - showing up all fucked up on absinthe might make things more interesting than they need to be...lol..

It makes for a nice happy hour.

DO NOT drink a whole bottle with a friend.
You will end up going on a rampage, shooting your gun in the air, getting laid, kicking in doors, and a fight or two....

Trust me.

But I know someone who shipped a few bottles home.

VERY nice for a cocktail or two.

I haven't been able to find any REAL absynthe with real wormwood extract... everything I've seen online seems to be a licorice alcohol sans wormwood.

You can easily make it.
Wormwood is available at any herb store (try your local Chinatown).

Thujone has a similar effect as THC. Combined with the insanely high proof of alcohol, it makes for a ride similar to smoking a bunch of doobs and drinking a fifth of vodka.

...aaaah... Amsterdaam.....

It's really not all that.

It's a nice cocktail.
Nothing to fear, that's for certain.

Pernod was some toxic shit even after a few drinks, and that's the pantywaist 60 proof version of absinthe you can buy off the shelf here.

No thanks.

Well, if you did a shot of whiskey, it would take a while to feel it, and one shot isn't much.

But a shot of absinthe mixed in a glass of water should hit you a moment after your first few sips.
Just a mellow buzz...
Link Posted: 9/29/2004 1:05:45 PM EDT
Have another.
Then report back.
Link Posted: 9/29/2004 1:06:24 PM EDT
OK, one shot consumed. Waiting for a result...

This stuff has the highest thujone content allowed by law in Germany, just FYI. Thujone at this content makes the liquor have to be sold as a bitter and not a liquor.

That's what I did..did the whole thing with the sugar spoon and all that.....

Hello! I think I'm getting something now...

I got some Absinthe from the Czech Republic. Checz Absinthe Strong.

www.czechabsinth.com/products_02.htm

It was Ok, tasted like shit.

Me and my cousin drank a whole bottle the day it showed up at the door.
Talk about a bad hangover....I wanted to die the next day.
But it sure was fun, it gave me a great mellow buzz.


Took about 3 weeks to ship from the Czech Republic to the USA.

... What is the quality control like on that stuff? Not being regulated by the FDA would make me a bit concerned. Are there carcinogens in it? Toxins? Penis fall off shit? How do you know?

... A good friend of mine got into that whole holistic medicine, overseas purchase crap. His wife refused to ingest any of it nor would she allow her kids to either.

... About 6 months after my friends' experiment with the shit began he came down with an unexplained cancer

... That cancer killed him shortly afterwards

It's just booze, man...I'm not going to do a shot every 10 minutes until I chop my ear off.

I'm having a little trouble typing, and that's weird after 1.5 shots of liquor.
