I haven't had that stuff since I was in Barcelona Spain I am glad it has become legal again(?)

Re: Mwhaha

Indeed. Though I'm not sure it's all legal. And I think a lot of people get it via the "gray market."

I lost my absinthe virginity in January (in Vegas!), and thought I was gonna die. I didn't sip, I bottomsed-up. Dear God, it was sublime.

Wow. Apparently, Jägermeister contains more of the questionable herbs than any of the absinthes imported into the United States. But because it's not called absinthe, it evades the ban. Plus, it's too gross to drink the way one might drink pastis.

It was the Staroplzenecky brand from the Czech Republic, in a medicinal green color. We alternated with shots of my friend's homemade Limoncello, which was in a milkier green. You could say it was an evening of green dissolution. I thank the Lord Jesus that I'm here to tell you about it. :)

I hear the Czech stuff is the strongest. I tried a Czech one, perhaps the same brand, and, though I was warned that it was bitter, liked it a lot.

mmmmm...the last time i had absinthe was 7 years ago in new orleans. my friend came to visit me there after a trip to budapest and brought it back. we went to see the dirty three at the mermaid lounge after a couple of glasses. that was a VERY lovely evening...

I love the Dirty Three, especially live. Hypnotic, not unlike New Orleans.
