my method of correction for over-watering is to drink it anyway and try to be more careful with the next glass. It's not rocket surgery.



Agreed

The room it smelled heavy of drinkin',  

and the sad silent song, made the hour twice as long,

as I waited for that sun to go sinkin'.

Joe L has been playing at the theatre too much lately (but he did slip off for a couple of runs on his snowboard today).

Hell of a challenge, fpb. It is one I would not win. I would wager the overwhelming majority (+90%) would fail. There are a few here that could do it with great consistency but I know I'm not one of them. This weekend, I will find time to run this little experiment--not a blind, scientific study but a drink made with fpb's specifications to see if I can detect a difference. Maybe I'll make two drinks: one made as usual and one as fpb described. What a great excuse for two drinks at the same time! :devil:

I may have to do it, as well. Just get the snowboarding in first. :twitchsmile:

I want to shake the hand of the man or woman who thinks they could pull this off with any consistency. I'm not thinking I'd take that bet as a taster.


It wouldn't surprise me if I pulled it off, but I wouldn't bet that I could do it one time, much less every time.

Another variable in that experiment, consider a taste soon after mixing, vs sitting a few minutes.

You got a problem with that?

The beauty of a dripper is that once you get the hang of it , it is nearly impossible to over water.



Once you know an absinthe, a dripper, and how much water you like, just fill it to the point you know and you don't have to baby sit it.

With a slow dripping fountain, if you don't keep an eye on it (like if you have small children), things could turn tragically over watered.

Seeing SpaceX about to send a capsule to the ISS, I wondered how would absinthe be louched in zero G. I tried to post to WS in FB, and (as usual for me) failed.

Remembering the neat stuff cannot be in a plastic baggie, and that water will only move by being forced too.

(I get it that is the same case on earth, but we take gravity for granted)

Maybe a bubble of absinthe is slowly injected with cold water?
