  • “Loved it!!! I usually drink absinthe with a sugar cube and ice water – It was great with champagne!! My two loves combined… It is perkier, if that is a word and the champagne smooths the absinthe. I am in heaven! And way easier to put together then dragging out the fountain and spoons!! I will use this recipe a lot! Thanks for sharing Hemingway’s recipe! A toast to you on your day!”

  • “The last time I had absinthe I ended up swimming naked at an internet get-together, along with 25 other people. Singing untill losing my voice at 6 AM, and drinking Absolut Vodka from the bottle as if it were Water! I must try this drink sometime :)*LOL*”
