How to Prepare a Glass of Absinthe Even before absinthe was banned in Europe and the United States, the herbal liqueur had a long history with artists and writers. During the century-long absinthe-ban, the drink reached near-mythical proportions. Much of the buzz was due to its outlaw status but some of the drink's allure must be credited to the ritual surrounding its preparation. Now, once again legal in the US, absinthe is drawing curious crowds. Lance Winters, Distiller at Alameda, California-based St. George Spirits, spoke with Outside's Go about some of the links between artists and absinthe as well as the proper way to prepare a glass.

Isidore preparing Absinthe HD stereo : I love Absinth, and I love modular synthesizers, so I thought it would be a good idea to do something featuring those two wonders... And as it actually looked quite good and kinda hypnotic, I taped and uploaded it. This shows the absinth ritual using a see saw brouilleur and Verte de Fougerolles Absinth (I love that brand). The sound of the see saw brouiller is captured by a microphone and used to trigger stuff in the modular synth (Doepfer A100, with the one and only Isidore robot cabinet)... so that every drops (approximately) changes synth parameters such as pan, fm, filters and delay clock. I also added some melody from my micromoog and some rvb (on the moog only). I had to make several takes and edited the thing while I was totally drunk. I hope you enjoy it, if you do, don't forget to rate, comment, subscribe and all that stuff. Watch in HD with stereo sound :

Pouring Absinthe Suisse Style Paul Nathan shows us how to pour a traditional Suisse style absinthe. Suisse is how the Swiss spell Swiss, so an Absinthe Suisse or a Suisse Absinthe is a Swiss Absinthe or an absinthe from Switzerland or a Swiss style absinthe. Swiss absinthes are characterized by the lack of coloration in the product. When absinthe is distilled it comes out clear. Producers add color either by using dyes or food colorings or by dunking a really big tea bag full of herbs into the finished product. This final step adds color and changes the flavor of the beverage. Swiss style absinthes skip this coloring step. Occasionally you will hear of a Suisse La Blue or a Swiss La Blue. La Blue means bootleg. It was quite common for absinthe to be distilled in Switzerland during the ban. These absinthes were illegal, moonshine, bootleg, La Blue. Several modern brands have co-opted the name La Blue for their own advertising. La Blue does not refer to the color of the Spirit or the Color of the Louche.
Absinthe: The Legend of the Green Fairy The Legend of the Green Fairy has been reproduced from the Obsello presentation at Degusta trade show in Barcelona, Spain. Absinthe, otherwise known as the "Green Fairy" rose in popularity throughout the 1800's. By 1915 "The Green Fairy" had met her untimely end in France, Switzerland, the United States and nearly every part of the world. With few exceptions, her presence became a note of nearly forgotten history. This historical recap of the mythical Absinthe Fairy captures the story behind the rise and fall of absinthe's popularity throughout the previous century. As one of the most beloved beverages in 19th century Europe, and one of the only two alcoholic beverages to have its own deity, artists, poets and writers alike have been drawn to its allure. Selling over 32 million liters per year in 1910 France, absinthe outperformed wine sales. The Green Fairy went through decades of being loved, embraced and cherished, later to be sent into a downward spiral as a result of the temperance movement and wine industry competitors. Absinthe was demonized, cast away and to be forgotten for nearly 100 years and has only recently been revived in Europe and other parts of the world.

The Absinthe Journey My friends and I spent a whole day travelling in our town in order to buy absinthe. We wanted to buy the cheapest bottle so we visited all the supermarkets around. At the end of the day, we realised that we didn't have enough money. So, we didn't buy anything. (Credits: the girl is Sabela and the guy is HerrOmega. Music from Marilyn Manson.

Absinthe Poor Man's Cocaine Mixologist Jared Williams pours the Poor Man's Cocaine as a layered shot then the Flat Liner ***tail. Both of these drinks share the same basic ingredients. In fact, the Poor Man's Cocaine is essentially a shot version of the Flat Liner. These are both delicious coffee based ***tails with a serious kick. They are truly a treat for the senses. Not only do they taste nice and look great, but the aroma is wonderful and the texture is interesting as well. The Poor Man's Cocaine is a shot and is meant to be drunk as one. That is consumed in a single gulp. The Absinthe Flat Liner is like a time bomb in your mouth with a surprise flavor explosion after about twenty seconds. Poor Man's Cocaine - Shot We used Kübler in this video but you can use most Swiss, Bohemian, or American ***tail style brands for this (you can experiment with the French brands but the bitter flavor might be too much) 1 shot absinthe 1/2 shot coffee liquor Float of Baileys Irish Cream 1 pinch of coffee grounds Build ***tail in mixing tin with ice. 1/2 shot absinthe 1/2 shot coffee liquor (Kahlua) Shake and strain into shot glass Float Baileys on top.

Absinthe - France August 2006 It's a drink so strong and feared, it still can't be produced legally in America. We journey to France to see how the 'green fairy' -- otherwise know as absinthe - is made. Absinth was the favourite tipple of French artists, poets and writers during the Belle Epoche. It was so popular, ***tail time was referred to as 'the green hour.' But rumours it could induce madness led to it being banned for 70 years. However producer Ted Brow is adamant it has never been dangerous. "I found nothing in it that could cause someone to go crazy." Produced by ABC Australia Distributed by Journeyman Pictures

Taboo-Absinthe.3gp How To Prepare Absinthe: Taboo Genuine Absinthe by Okanagan Spirits #TabooAbsinthe This short video has been recorded at the Toronto Wine And Cheese Show in March 2010 by @TopWineNews ( Absinthe is a simple drink to prepare and all you need is two parts ice cold water to one part Absinthe. Once water is added to Absinthe, it mixes with the oils of the Anise and turns the original green liquid cloudy. This is called the louche. The adding of the water will also release the intricate aromas captured within the spirit and reduce the alcohol percentage making the drink a much more enjoyable experience. Adding of Sugar. "Many consumers believe that Absinthe should be poured over a sugar cube and set on fire before adding water. This is a very contemporary way of serving Absinthe and not one that is needed for Taboo. The sugar was added for sweetness and to remove the harshness of marginal quality Absinthe. Super-Quality Absinthe (such as Taboo) does not require sugar. We at Okanagan Spirits recognize that the serving of Absinthe for some is all about the ritual, but we advise caution when igniting 60% alcohol as it may cause injury. A safer way to add sugar would be to use a balancier or an Absinthe fountain." "Absinthe (ab-sinth) is historically described as a distilled, highly alcoholic (4574% ABV) beverage. It is an anise-flavoured spirit derived from herbs, including the flowers and leaves of the herb Artemisia absinthium, commonly referred to ...

Paatos - Absinth Minded Album: Kallocain (2004) Lyrics: What if I told you that my happiness is depending on you? That all my fortune is asleep inside of your hands? Would you believe me if I told you my true intentions? Would you still look at me with an all sincere smile? Is there a place for me without you? Please tell me that it's so Where would I be, what could I do without you? If you would tell me that it's time to get out, time to move on What direction would I choose? What would I do? Graciously we fly It's so quiet Blinded by her, the great Misfortune The moment she's gone it starts all over again Blinded by her, the great Misfortune The moment she's gone I'm down on my knees.
Czech Absinthe Huffing Ritual Paul Nathan demonstrates the Czech Huffing Ritual. Most absinthe enthusiasts shun any serving method involving fire, this one in particular. Here at Absintheology we don't judge, we just educate. This is a common method of consuming absinthe in Praque. It's a version of the backdraft. I personally spent the night face down in a gutter in Prague after a few of these so be careful. ... and no, it won't make you hallucinate.

The Traditional Prepation of Absinthe This video demonstrates the traditional method of preparing Absinthe. 1.2 ounces of Absinthe to 3 to 5 parts ice water depending on one's taste and/or container size. Sugar is optional. A sugar holder (Absinthe Spoon) is use to hold the sugar while it dissolves under a slow drip of ice water. Water then drips on the sugar which drips into the Absinthe below. The traditional method takes about 1.5 minutes to complete. This video has been edited for time. A word on "flaming": Lighting Absinthe on fire is dangerous and should never be done. Furthermore, it destroys the essential oils that give Absinthe's unique timeless taste. Please enjoy responsibly!
