Much controversy surrounds the exotic anise flavored spirit that is Absinthe. Given the moniker ‘The Green Fairy’ because of its hallucinatory effects caused by the small amounts of wormwood included in traditional Absinthe. Banned in the US and many other countries in the early 1900‘s, it has since gained a revival and is currently being manufactured in several European countries. The traditional preparation of a single serving consists of one shot of Absinthe to three to five parts ice cold water, which is poured over a sugar cube that is placed on a slotted spoon on the rim of the glass. Absinthe is quite high in alcohol content, so moderation is highly recommended.
