    Absinthe

    Must admit I never heard of this stuff.

    Perhaps due to my strong Celtic/Germanic roots, I prefer something a bit more "native" - Beck's (dark) beer and Bushmill's Irish whiskey.

    I have had the opportunity to try both modern absinthe and "pre-ban" absinthe. It my honest opinion, the modern stuff tasted, to me, very similar to Jagermeister liquor. The pre-ban just tasted a little off to me, though there is a lot of argument about methods of preparation. Generally, setting fire to the absinthe is a huge faux pas and it is thought to ruin the taste.

    Absinthe is my very favorite drink! I'm not going to lie, that might be because the whole spoon/sugar cube ritual makes me feel really cool! In America it is really hard to find good, legitimate Absinthe. I drink a brand called Lucid. Supposedly it's the first real Absinthe in America since the ban. I don't know if that is true or not but I went on an Absinthe connoisseur's forum and apparently it's actually an alright brand!
