In the middle of the street at 4 a.m., in a church, underwater or on an airplane, I wanna hear where or when was the weirdest for you to louche up a glass of absinthe and the story behind it. You can also tell me the brand that was in fact consumed if relevant (like if you've ever had a glass of Hill's at the Absinthiades or in the Combier distillerie...). Have fun with this and let's all have a laugh!

Start here. :cheers:
Floating down a river with a glass of absinthe in one hand and a flyrod in the other is still a favorite place to enjoy absinthe. Hmmm, maybe that's why Sonja calls it Sirene.

Oh, I was wondering if there was someone who already posted that question and didn't find that one. Thanks T

I looked and looked for that a little bit ago. Thanks Joe.

And thanks HH for bumping the thing. It'll be nice to see the new additions.

Cheers!
Some folks may cringe each time I use the term "Booze" regarding these high quality drinks.
I mean no offense. There are bottles of extraordinary booze out there. I've tasted a few. Relax.

Exactly what Bill said.

I didn't realized that thread had been started quite that long ago.

Outdoors in Heather Meadows about a mile up Mount Baker with that FV reprobate Chrisippvs, is still about as strange and surreal an absinthe experience as I've had,

You got a problem with that?

I drank absinthe in a hotel room with Alan Moss, but that's about as far away from just drinking it at my house as I've ever gotten, unfortunately. Except for in Paris, in Luc's shop. I'm not very exciting in this regard. Tonight I'm going to have to get myself an elephant and ride it down the entire length of Yonge St, louching as I go.

Some pizza joint up North. ;)

Just kidding it wasn't me.


Walking home from UNM one night I sipped a nice small container of raspberry eau-de-vie, there was a fresh blanket of snow and ice for me to potentially injure myself but I f'd up in reverse and made it home healthy and sober.

Having a green hour with a certain forum member in a hotel lobby was a lot of fun and the looks we got from the guests were pretty hilarious.

A little technological fix to a spiritual problem.

Wow! Did he wear his bright blue latex grope suit....Ooops! Oh shit, Allen. And I promised I wouldn't tell!





Damn. That was good absinthe.

This past summer I did what you might call a very improper "reverse louche" into half empty water bottles while attending some concerts. Louched up some VdF and Lucid watching The Dave Matthews Band. Then I had some Duplias verte and Lucid while watching Jack Johnson and Mason Jennings. Thats about the only places i've done it other than my house.


By the way, at home it is served more traditionally :cheers:

A class act, obviously. But I have to admit that my favorite expression about a beverage that stuns me is "The next time I drink this, I want it to be out of someone's navel!"

Wild horse Hot Springs in January. We didn't get ourselves kicked out, like some people, but I don't want to be naked around friends who have more tattooing than me.

Isn't Yonge Street the longest street in the world, and at this time of the year that would be animal cruelty.

I'd ride that beastie right into Yonge Station.

They were always very tolerant, at least whenever I hung out there in the 70s. :devil:
