Absinthe on the Brain
For a while there, we'd given up on the green fairy known as absinthe. Yeah, we got incredibly drunk when we tried it but that was probably because we were mixing it with Red Bull and vodka (known as a Bull Rush, if we remember correctly). But after covering Ted Breaux, who we call the absinthe man, and his efforts on behalf of the misunderstood liqueur, we're starting to come around. We know the thujone in the wormwood doesn't make you trip like the college kids want to believe, but it does do something to make for an interesting experience.
We found some more absinthe coverage this morning over at The Sporting Life, so we figured we'd share it.
Re: the qualities of absinthe. A buddy and I finished an entire bottle one night and we saw very few “green fairies.” However, my friend did fall asleep screaming about going to some dance club that didn’t exist. So there’s that.
We're pretty sure the brand they're talking about is Absinthe Schulz, a Czech brand that weighs in at a whopping 120 proof. Head on over to The Sporting Life
and you'll find a link to where you can order it.
