Preparing Absinthe In Society

Properly preparing a glass of absinthe isn't as complicated as you may think.

Wormwood Society Editor Comments
A perfect example of fake absinthe. Yes, it even has the obligatory sprig of wormwood in the bottle.

Editor reviews

Appearance: A frightening listerine green. Obviously fake.

Louche: No louche to speak of.

Aroma: Smells of cheap whiskey. Seriously.

Flavor: I have to take a few deep breaths while recollecting my experiences just to calm down. It's times like these that make me seriously question why I choose to review brands like this. I've never tasted anything so vile, and I've tasted a lot of very nasty absinth. Like drinking drain cleaner. It is the most bitter fake absinth I have ever come across. Instant stomach ache.

Finish: Overwhelming, gag-inducing bitterness.

Overall: Never, ever, EVER drink this. Ever. Seriously. Don't even give it to people you hate. This stuff is evil. The company who makes it should be paying other people simply to stay away from it.

Appearance: It has that mid-nineties douchebag Mustang green color.

Louche: None. None at all. Clearly no anise.

Aroma: Smells like they extracted all the goo from a nail salon, mixed it with all the goo from a tanning salon, and distilled it.

Flavor: White dog and witch hazel. Terrible.

Finish: Not much finish other than burning alcohol in the mouth/stomach.

Overall: AWFUL.

Color: Dark green but still neon. In fact it is a vivid green through an amber glass bottle. They can do amazing things with chemicals these days.

Louche: I think I saw oil trails. Certainly no clouds. At 4:1 it just ends up a watered down version of it's original color. So... no louche.

Aroma: Smells the same neat and cut. Sugary mint with nail polish. No absinthe smells from this one.

Flavor: Nasty. Like leftover salon juice that was distilled and colored by some mutant chemist from a comic book.

Finish: I wish that it didn't last for the five seconds that it does.

Overall: Gross. Not absinthe at all. A terrible offering to the green fairy and nothing short of spitting in her face.
