  1. 1934 Herbsaint booklet ( First year ), part of a group of liquor booklets I snagged cheap. Now all I need is the Legendre Absinthe booklet variation.
  2. Good, bring me some swag...I'll wear my Velvet Jones outfit.
  3. Look on eBay, you can find a lot of vintage short Mazagran glasses, usually advertised as absinthe glasses. I've had a set for a dozen years that has seen a lot of Louchefests™
  4. Some use small spray bottle to mist the inside of the glass, or you can learn to get better at pouring just enough to coat a glass with practice.

    Is it?

    Hopefully they like expensive recently made olive oil dispensers...
  6. For the carafe fanciers, get these: http://www.icetubes.com/new/home.asp
  7. W. C. Fields was right, Never Give A Sucker an Even Break
  8. Most likely it'll be a mid level absinthe, that will get a huge media push. P. R. probably could care less about absinthe forums, they'll make a big push though other cocktail sources, as this being the second coming. Just watch...
  9. P. R. sells an oil mix absinthe at 65-75 USD (Or more) for a decade.....hmmm what would they do?
  10. Just another "Tugger" Max wannabe ...
  11. Get a tube of Taylor Icecream Machine lube, to lube and seal the taps on the modern metal fountains. I did a little tune up work on the tap parts, since I'm used to working with items like that. You almost have to look at the indivual repro fountain. (I had a couple of the early metal repros, which had a little variation in the Q.C. when they were first released) I still use an ancient glass L'Amesinthe fountain from the early 2000s for one or two person use, I take very good care of all this absinthe junk.
  12. Get a height gage with a carbide scriber: http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/WESTWARD-Height-Gage-2YND3?Pid=search
  13. Twins. The one on the right still has content.
  14. Pernod Pastis? Get a Rope... In New Orleans they use Herbsaint.
  15. There was a 1930s red absinthe substitute made in New Orleans, I have the advertisement.
  16. These pair nicely:Alpaca socks Comfortable feet and a glass of absinthe.
  17. One of the three members of the New Orleans Absinthe Manufacturers Association. It's just a little historical project I'm putting together.
  18. It's not the first... This will be the second Red absinthe made in New Orleans, since there was one made many years ago in NOLA.
