I've thought about this a bit lately and I thought it might make an interesting topic here. So I have a couple bottles of blanche which I got because both were well rated and I like trying new absinthes. I hadn't really loved any of the blanche I had in that past, but I thought maybe these would be different. Wrong. Don't get me wrong- they're nice, but for me even a good blanche just always seems to be missing all the types of flavors I actually love about absinthe. They always seem bland in comparison. I know that kind of thing is down to personal preference so I'm not going to mention the brands I have.
Anyway my idea is simple. I was wondering if you could just throw some kind of local herb/plant in a partly consumed bottle, let it soak in there for a while (month?) or however long, and then strain the contents back out, and have something with a little more flavor. I was thinking about doing this with some wild honeysuckle that is pretty common around here. Is there any reason why I shouldn't do this? Or any tips on how *to* do it?
