Those experienced with ABSINTHE....
    #2751037 - 05/31/04 10:57 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Hey all,

I recently returned from overseas and picked up a bottle of absinthe at the duty free on my way home, equipped with wormwood goodness :P

My only experience with this stuff is a half a shot, which made me feel very stoned and very energetic.

Does anyone have more experience with this stuff? Where does 2 shots get you? 3? 4? etc.

Any other info/advice etc. about absinthe is appreciated also.

How are you gonna drink it? Usually you're supposed to add a shot of water for every shot of absinthe, and a spoonful of flaming sugar. And drinking that gets you pretty trashed, and really energetic. And then a brutal hangover.

Mmmm absinthe....

Some advice,
-Don't drink so much that the alcohol affects you, this usually kills the unique effects of the absinthe. If you want to get drunk there are easier and cheaper means to do so.
-Avoid bright lights, they can be very painfull
-Smoke some pot after having a glass.

It all depends.

Exactly what brand of Absinth did you buy?

Was it Absinth or Absinthe?

What is the alcohol content?

I normally buy Sebor Absinth because it has a low alcohol content. (I can get shit faced off of any high alcohol content drink, I'd rather feel the effects of the woodworm) With Sebor Absinth I mix it about one part Absinth and three parts water all over ice. I usually consume one or two glasses. As far as the sugar goes, you don't have to add any if you don't want to. And if you do it doesn't have to be on fire. I believe the reason for lighting sugar cubes on fire before dropping in the absinth was to carmelize/soften the sugar so it was easier to mix in. I drink it both ways, with and without sugar, but I never light it on fire before I drop it in.(The absinth I use probably isn't flamable due to low alcohol content) I have never used high alcohol content Absinth. But I can tell you the effects of the woodworm are very much like being stoned. I have never hallucinated off of Absinth and I never expect too. I usually have a glass during a movie at home or before I go out with friends. It's a very mild comfortable feeling. Anyways, check out http://seborabsinth.com/ the have some links there that might answer you questions. Also, there are alot of sites that rate different brands of Absinth and have lots of good information about it. Good Luck, have fun!

Thanks for the replies guys.

The stuff I got is "Absenta Tunel" - 1 Litre - 140 Proof - 70% Vol.

On the back it also reads about adding water and sugar.

PS - Royale, nice sig 5 shroomies for you! (seeing primus for the second time in about 2 weeks :laugh: )

Well I think drinking more than two shots of the high alcohol stuff is rather warned against.

If you buy it in a bar over here you have to sign your name and/or get a stamp to make sure you dont drink more than two. I remember a story in the paper last year; a man died after drinking 5 shots over an all day drinking session with some stuff brought back from Spain.

I've never experienced the stuff but most of the stories I've heard from friends include people getting paraletic or passing out and getting thrown out of bars for being too drunk but these guys all expect it to just be like aftershock or goldschlager and must have been drinking as normal.

absinth and absinthe are the same thing.

just a word of advice, dont make your own even if you buy a kit. I have ordered from over seas and made my own and making your own sucks balls compared to ordering it.

I'm almost positive Absinth and Absinthe are not the same thing. I believe Absinthe is the Chzec form of Absinth while Absinth is Spains version of it. Yeah, I wouldn't make mine either. You can make your own moonshine too, but I would rather go buy a bottle of Bicardi 151, know what I mean? Absinth manufacures make their money buy making a quality product. I would stay away from doing shots of Absinth. Mix with water. And at 140 proof I would drink enough to feel it but not enough to drown out the woodworm with alcohol.

I hope to see PRIMUS again real soon at their show in Chicago!!!
