1 pound absinthe
Ingredient: absintheWhat it is: Spirit
An anise-flavored spirit derived from herbs, including the flowers and leaves of the herb Artemisia absinthium (wormwood). Absinthe traditionally has a natural green color but can also be colorless. Although absinthe was vilified, no evidence has shown it to be any more dangerous than ordinary spirits.
Ingredient: waterWhat it is: Additive
Ubiquitous chemical substance that is composed of hydrogen and oxygen and is essential for all forms of life -- also a component of all drinks.
2 to 4 drop anisette(Use Absinthe Drip-glass.)
Ingredient: anisetteAlso Known As: anis, liqueur d'anis What it is: Liqueur
Anise-flavored liqueur that is sweeter than most anise-flavored liqueurs (such as pastis), and also has a lower alcohol content (typically 25% by volume, versus 40%). Like pastis, it was first created to replace absinthe. Marie Brizard is a well-known producer of French-style anisette. Anís del Mono is a Spanish brand. Sambucca Romana is one of Italy's versions.
Pour one pony of absinthe into the bottom glass, fill the upper (drip) glass full of ice-water. When two-thirds of the water has dripped into the absinthe it is ready to be drunk. A few drops of anisette will improve this drink.
