    Absinthe

    Absinthe is... something special and hard to describe with words. You love it or you hate is. Some people drink it for fun or because it's "trendy", some drink it just like every other kind of alcohol, some just feel its especialness and celebrate the act of drinking the "Green Goddess" or the "Green Fairy".

    I have to admit that I belong to the last group for years now and get starry-eyed when thinking about the next time I will be able to enjoy Absinthe.

    I don't drink it regularly for I don't want it to lose its magic. It's much more special when you wait for another occassion. But what is its "magic"? It hasn't got the effect of a "real drug" and if you don't trink too much of it you even don't get drunk; but there's a special feeling connected with Absinthe and maybe its effect is more on a mental level. You feel inebriated, creative and just tall... Not very easy to explain. But maybe some of the ones who have already tried it might now...

    Some links of interest:

    - The Virtual Absinthe Museum


    - Aleister Crowley about the Green Goddess

    I hate the stuff. A vile, evil drink is what it is. The mere smell is enough for my stomach to knot..:frown:

    I've never been a fan of raw, hard alcohol drinks, but this stuff... Pure evil is what it is.

    I have to confess I've never had this, but you've really intrigued me now, Blutwölfin. You'll have to show me how it is done one day.

    I generally like it, but I've never looked at it in the spirtual way...I've usually only drank it when I was already very drunk...so...
    Hmmm... need to try the next time...

    I just know once, the first time, it almost killed me, I downed to much of it at once

    P.S.: BW, living in Austria, do you also have to habit to get STROH "80" when the beer's out???? :

    Poor Absinthe! It's really not a drink that should be consumed to get drunk. It's taste is precious and it's almost rude IMHO to drink it like that... :frown:

    Oh no... two of the vilest things I have ever had the displeasure of drinking too much of, and I will never touch either EVER again.

    I don't drink very much. And I never would drink such a poor thing like Stroh Rum. It's for teenagers who only can afford to pay about 10 Euro for a bottle of alcohol or derelicts who don't enjoy wine in tetrapacks anymore. Or tourists who think that they're comsuming an Austrian delicacy.

    When I was already drunk, not to get drunk. This did not contribute to any blurring of the taste, but to the blurring of a possible spiritual perception through it.
