Howdy to all! My first taste of anise flavored drink was ouzo and Pernod (pastis) love them both. I ran across an artical about absinthe back around 1999 and was bitten. Got to get some green fairy!! My first was order was a bottle of Versinthe La Blanche from Markus Lion in Germany. It was shipped as cooking oil. My very first taste was an ounce in a glass, gave it a sniff, a little on the tongue to test the taste and tossed it down! Since then I have learn to sip and enjoy. At the moment I am sipping a mug of Nouvelle Orleans, not bad. The stuff does help if one has a sour stomach!! Pure magic!!

Nice to have another dude that uses beers mugs for absinthe. :)

If you see it called clown sized, it's not a put down, it's in honor of the the clown who has a thing for big glasses of absinthe.

Hi! :wave2:

The "mug o' stuff" is in one of Absomphe's shot glasses. ;)
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.

You had me at "Mug-O-Stuff"

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'.
