Absinthe - The Green Fairy

spergSperg on 02/01/2008

AbsintheTheGreenFairy Photo Absinthe is an anise flavored liquor with an extremely high alcohol content (usually between 50% and 75%) that had been banned in the Western World during the second decade of the 20th century, after heavy users were noted to have a propensity towards madness, suicide and even murder.
This behavior was blamed on the chemical thujone found in the wormwood herb used to make Absinthe.
Though it was vilified, no evidence shows it to be any more dangerous or psychoactive than ordinary alcohol.
Thus, after 95 years, the United States welcomes Absinthe back from exile.
During the heady days of late 19th century Paris, Absinthe was the trademark drink of artists like Degas, Manet, Picasso, Van Gogh, Toulouse-Lautrec and Oscar Wilde.
I picked up a bottle the other day - if you like the licorice flavor of Ouzo and Sambuca, you'll like Absinthe.
OK, who's a Green Fairy?

Absinthe doesn't sound safe to consume except in small amounts.
