Hi this might be long but I wondered if anyone could enlighten me.
I have been drinking Absinthe very occasionally for the past 5 or so years, I enjoy the 'ritual' but have never noticed any different feeling other that usual drunk effects.
However... on a recent trip to Poland, my partner and I visited a bar called Absinthe, we had already had a couple of pints of beer and we had 3 absinthes. They were done by the barman the Bohemiam way which seems to be traditional in Poland. Instead of getting drunker our minds seemed to become clearer and remained so for the rest of the night.
It might have been just 'luck' and the mood we were both in, but it might have been an effect of the Absinthe? Can anyone tell me if they have had anything similar and if there is a brand of Absinthe that will more likely recreate this effect?
We had two brands that night, one was Mr Jekyell and the other was a Czech one but Im not sure of the name.
The outcome of the evening is that I have 'discovered' the Doors... I had always liked individual songs but had never really paid attention to them all.
