  1. Well the people coming over are all Victorian Society buddies, so I was thinking along the lines of a victorian cocktail hour. The imaginary itenerary goes Eduard, some light snacks, more substantial meal, and cigars and the VdF/BdF, maybe Kübler. Dark chocolate could easily fit in there somewhere.
  2. So I'm having a small group of friends over for an introduction to good drinks. My birthday bottle of Edouard came in along with some other personal items and I wanted to share the wealth with the poor unfortunates with whom I have aqquaintince. Only one problem, what to serve with le Fee Verte? Also, any cigar or pipe smokers out there please pass along a recomendation on tobacco, since I don't want to overpower any of the tastes.
  3. Yeah, I was more enticed by the try, carafe, glasses and spoons in the set than the absinthe. Thanks for the heads up, I think I'll go with another bottle of Jade
  4. Speaking of Madam Corelli, Wormwood a Drama in Paris is a great read for a fiction novel. It provides an interesting view of the times, even if it is anti absinthe.
  5. Well it feels like years (might actually be) since I posted. 4 Gallery openings a 5 page paper, a Masonic invitation, and a new computer later and I'm back. So I was browsing Alandia and found the buyersguide special. It has a bunch of nice little extra doo dads that I'd like to add to my houre verte but I want to know if the Absinthe is worth drinking or if I'd be better off buying the cool toys without the happy meal. As always thanks for the suggestions
  6. Hey again everybody, it seems like forever. I was strolling across some books in the barony library and found a reference to a drink known as Aloxinum, here it is in full aloxinum, a drink, honey wine, or mead mixed with absinthe this was written by my man Pliny the Younger in an essay on Drinks of Phrygia in the 300's. I was wondering if anyone had any further info on said drink. Thanks much as always
  7. The glass above looks like my girlfriends glass. She says absinthe is "icky" and that I should drink something more normal like beer. What can I say, I love her. On the sugar side I actually found some cubes in a 7/11 here in town, so you might want to snag a look when you next get some gas. Making your own cubes is a lot more fun though, I made some with a Boba Fett mask tray and they were out of this world (punny?).
  8. Try doing Victorian recreation in a big goth city. If I meet one more person that wants to come to the house and talk about how much angst they have I'm going to puke. As a gamer (real gaming, RPGS, Wargames, etc.) I have to accept that we are almost always two sides of the same coin. But seriously! Cheer Up! We live with central air and refrigerators, life is good.
  9. I dealry love my period clay tavern pipe. When I went to my first SCA event and they told me to loose the cigs I was terriffied, I had never smoked a pipe before. Subadai gave me an old torn up clay tavern and that's all I've ever smoked on since, even made my own, which is way to hard to do again. I really prefer the cavendish blends to the turkish, now matter how much I get made fun of for it not being period.
  10. Howdy, I was wondering if anyone could point me to a site that has info on home brewing beers and ales. I've been interested in this for years and finally decided to get of my butt and do it. Thanks for the info.
  11. I grew up in Texas and Kentucky, I drink Bourbon when the absinthe is absent. But I have to say it "Buarbon" Kentucky Buarbon, Makers Mark specifically, or Jim Beam.
  12. This was the first Swiss absinthe I tried and I really enjoyed the taste. The louche was amazing, I'm used to the UE's and the Frankie Guy so the louche on this one was really a change. One thing i was wondering, is this strong louche characteristic of all Swiss absinthes?
  13. An Update! I have finished the photos and I got rid of the graveyard stuff. It's all absinthe and I'm going to mount them on some empty bottles, one of them actually absinthe and another from an admittedly bad wine. Add a little paint and some ink and viole', art. I'll put up some links to the final result when it's done and finished.
  14. I was just about to make an order and wanted to know what the UE Sapin tasted like, that pine nut line made me wonder if it was like Greek wine. Thanks
  15. Beautiful photo, I'm in gainesville, it sucks, I need to leave
