Absinthe: A Documentary

absinthe-poster-full.jpgFor many people, absinthe is a drink that is clouded in mystery and made intimidating by rumors and innuendo. "I don't know," they'll say when the subject comes up, "is it going to make me cut any body parts off?" We just found out about a documentary that's attempting to separate fact and fiction for the enigmatic spirit. We haven't seen it yet, but we plan to post haste.

From the synopsis:

Absinthe: was it ambrosia or poison, artistic muse or ticket to madness and death? There is a tremendous fascination with absinthe, yet few truly know its rich history. The documentary ABSINTHE definitively brings the Green Fairy out of her clouded past where, for one hundred years, her fabled effects and demonized reputation have excited equal doses of admiration and loathing.
Check out the trailer below and hit the Absinthe Film website for more info; you can also stream the movie at Amazon.

I think that adding a drink like Absinthe is a great addition to any Bar. It adds for a unique conversation piece. For the people out there that are unfamiliar with it's history here is your chance to inform them. Hopefully you can do a follow up to this blog with some drink ideas.

Wasn't bad, but there were some discrepancies in earlier versions. Not sure if they've been updated or not, but we told them about the errors when they posted about it in our forums,
