size 2, font: palantino linotype.... the only font.

this is my third glass of absinthe. the first was drank neat. it was

difficult only because it's like 136 proof. it is actually very smooth
although as you all know, quality of product is almost everything.
i spent over 100bucks on this bottle so reason accordingly. the rest
of the glasses i've drank were in the traditional method, ice water
dripped slowly over a sugar cube 4 parts ice water, 1 part absinthe.
its great. difficult to describe...but i'm no longer a "makers girl" follow
the link to the drink i bought... some have talked about the high...
i'll attempt. i've had no hallucinations yet it is definitely psychedelic
in nature. every thing about the drink says SEX, yeah...its a better
aphrodisiac that miller light. this would definitely be a GRAND
drink between friends as it has the same mental stimulating effects
as LSD without...at least thus far.. the visual hallucinations. slight visual
distortion is noted though nothing i can place my finger on. its more of
an over all visual blur.... interesting.

the sugared ice water turns the clear green liquor into a pale green cloud
that is enchanting. guys, if you want to surprise your girl.. pull this one
out. trust me, its a BOMB WINNER! first of all its illegal in most countries
second, chances are she has only maybe heard of the stuff! add some candles
and the proper absinthe ritual and you've got a romantic fun evening on your
hands. just don't forget to talk to her and ask her how her day went.

the high has an alcohol fee to it.. strange.... yet the actives in it as most of you
have read already elsewhere is not limited to the 136 proof. wormwood etc...
very different but nice.... why its ilegal.... i couldn't say... maybe terrence mckenna is correct. i wish i could be more help...

this i will say, it does have a similarity to MJ although i'd have to take more
than three drinks to be sure...i'm working on that. i'll post more after my next and before i crawl under my comforter. post this under a new "absinth first impressions" heading... i cant because i dont have the energy ;)

this is my second evening with the drug. i'll hit it a couple glasses harder and then go prepare my aya for thursday... more to come.
absinthe is my new favorite dink boys. i'll try and imbibe an amount that lends
itself to the psychedelic.

i had picked up the U.S. version 'Absente' which contains baby wormwood instead. I'm sure it is not as good as the real thing, however it is pretty interesting. we once had a glass during a mushroom experience, and recently at a small gathering most of the bottle was consumed. i always wanted to order up some real absinthe though. :eusa_danc
have fun

hmmm........ i didn't make it past glass four. it destroys you quickly.
i'm an avid wine drinker. i've been known to put down more makers
mark than any girl i know... something about absinthe kicks your ass.
four glasses and no one i know could tell i was drunk... yet... it kicked
the tar out of me. no visuals... distortions but no visuals like mushrooms
or lsd. i'm about to begin my preparation of aya. wish me luck.

absinthe is definitely a favorite drink now. sharing with friends is a must!
lets all get together and toast the new(ish) year!:amazed:

the Absinthe and mushrooms combo was interesting. the only thing i remember that was out of the ordinary was the wavelike motions that night were quicker. ie-breathing motions of walls and floor were more like fast ripples. also i remember looking at the night sky and seeing the stars behave strangely. Not sure if anything was out of the ordinary caused by the combination, but it still gave the experience a certian feel.

the US Absente tastes good, is very strong and leaves me relaxed and happy, but nothing visual. still want try the real thing.

Most of all - good luck brewing your Aya - best vibes sent your way

There are a lot of misconceptions about Absinthe that a site I found goes over nicely. Like the aforementioned drinking it in the traditional sense.

I am no expert but this site has definitely helped out along with good places to order and suggested bottles etc.
