You've surely heard the liquor called Absinthe, an alcoholic drink with a slight aniseed flavor, prohibited in many countries due to its high alcohol content (reaching up to 89,9º) that can cause hallucinations.
To drink this liquor, which is a mixture of herbs and flowers of medicinal and aromatic plants, cold water is added to form a milky-looking drink. Due to its leaf extract, it has that characteristic green color, which earned it the name "Green Fairy."
Whatever this controversial drink is, I think it deserves to be tried, although we recommend that it not be in large quantities and always do it with a full stomach.
Next, we will give you a video that shows us how to prepare absinthe.
Do you dare to try it?
Absinthe is an essentially social drink, and it is taken by adding very cold water (the effect known as "popcorn" occurs in aniseed absinthes, as it acquires a milky color), sugar can be added or not according to one's taste. If you decide to add sugar, the most classic ritual is to pour the absinthe into a large glass, then place the absinthe teaspoon on top of the glass, with a sugar cube on it, and pour the water slowly over the sugar. The lump dissolves and drips through the holes in the spoon. Once dissolved, it is stirred and it can be taken. The proportion of absinthe and water vary according to taste, it is usually mixed 1 part of absinthe to three parts of water and can reach up to 7 parts of water if you do not want to drink a lot of alcohol.
