Absinthe & Flamethrowers

absinthe_flamethrowers.jpgDid that title get your attention? It certainly got ours when we saw it emblazoned across the cover of a book (the full title of which is Absinthe & Flamethrowers: Projects and Ruminations on the Art of Living Dangerously). Most of the books we cover feature cocktail recipes and other quasi-safe ideas but this one we love because it's DANGEROUS. We have a feeling you, our debonair yet thrill-seeking reader, will love it too.

Written for reasonable risk takers and suburbanites who want to add more excitement to their lives. This daring combination of science, history, and DIY projects explains why danger is good for you and details the art of living dangerously.

Thanks Alan! We'll read up on that chapter, and I have a feeling our very own copy of the book will be showing up at the Liquor Snob offices sooner than later. And yes, moderation is key - we had an acquaintance dig into our absinthe stash a bit too wholeheartedly on New Year's Eve, and I have a feeling he was tasting the danger the next day.

The absinthe chapter is reviewed in more detail here:-

The book is well-sourced and shows that, in fact, absinthe is not too dangerous. But drink it sensibly!
