  1. That sounds like the Shrine. In Ohio, alcohol is still not allowed in masonic buildings, or at most official masonic gatherings, though we have it at some functions (AMD, Shrine events, banquets, etc...)
  2. 1. No one forced you to visit my website 2. if you have a problem with me, please address it to my e-mail, don't crow it out in some forum somewhere
  3. This is a recipe for Absinthe Cookies that I came up with a few years ago. They've turned into a seasonal favorite among my relatives and I was even successful in getting LaFee to post the recipe on their website. The recipe is thus: Ingredients 4 & ½ Cups Flour 1 tsp. Baking Soda 1 tsp. Cream of Tartar 1 tsp. Salt 1 Cup Butter 1 Cup Confectioner’s Sugar 1 Cup Granulated Sugar 2 Eggs 1 Cup Salad Oil 1 tsp. Anise candy flavoring oil ¼ tsp. Peppermint candy flavoring oil 2 Tbsp. Fresh Lemon Juice 2 Tbsp. Absinthe Icing 4 Cups Confectioner’s Sugar ½ Cup Butter 6 Tbsp. Absinthe 6 drops Anise Oil 1 Tbsp. Lemon Juice 1 Tbsp Water 1 to 2 Drops Green food coloring. Method Cream butter and sugar in large mixing bowl. Beat in eggs until fluffy and add oil, absinthe, lemon juice and candy flavoring oils, blend well. Combine flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt. Add dry ingredients to creamy mixture. Wrap and chill for several hours. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (163 degrees C). Roll dough into small balls and flatten on cookie sheet with the bottom of a drinking glass dipped in granulated sugar to prevent sticking. Bake 8-10 minutes. Serve as-is or Frost with Absinthe icing when cool.
  4. It wasn't my intent for it to be a complaint, and that's all I'm sayin' As for replying at the lounge, I just keep remembering the old adage: Never wrestle with a pig, you both get dirty, and the pig likes it.
  5. Sure enough, someone from "the lounge" has already taken the opportunity to exploit my membership here by posting on my website guestbook (already deleted) and starting a whole thread about it, which is like the second thread pretty much devoted to complaining about and mudslinging at my website - which, I'm pretty sure no one forced them to visit.
  6. Ahhh.... I think I could really dig this place.
  7. I used to be a fairly regular visitor at Louched Lounge, but got sick of being savagely attacked when I posted anything that didn't live up to their standards of "cool." It's refreshing to find an absinthe forum where people actually talk about absinthe and don't just insult eachother constantly. I have been an absinthe drinker for a few years. I started with LaFee, messed around with Sebor and Logan fils, then started working my way up through Fougerolles, Un Emile, Kübler, Absinthe Authentique, Jade and finally obtained a sample of the PF 1914 cache. The absinthe cookie recipe on LaFee's website - that's mine. Anyway, collecting and savoring Absinthe and other rare liquors is one of my passions (along with Freemasonry, Shooting, Camping, Juggling, Music and Herb Gardening). Nosdrovia!
  8. I didn't think it was quite horrible, but then again, I've tasted Logan Fils. The Apsinthion had a more citrousy smell I thought and had more body than the thin appearance would have led me to believe. The bottle I have was a gift, not bad, but wouldn't buy it again.
