Well,its 47-75% alcohol,lol.So,It would have to be halved with water or something.
Was looking for some nice,non sugary drinks from the drinkers.

Im seeing it tastes like black licorice generally.But theres different mixes,with the german stuff being sweeter and fruitier and the swiss stuff being more vegetable tasting.Ill try some small bottles of this and that.

I was into that stuff a few years back,and bought a kit online to make it myself, kit included the wormwood, and mix, Just had to add everclear and let it sit for a week in the dark....... Holy shit was that shit wicked. I swear it was like doing acid !!!!! never again, no absinthe for me.

Try a session on Vodka and Red Bull, 50/50 mix in a half pint tumbler. It's surprising how quick a quart of vodka disappears. Promotes rapid onset of happiness and I could dance all night on it.

I remember trying some real absinthe back in the early 2000s. I couldn't stand the taste and it was definitely a weird experience. After that one night I have never had the urge to try it again. So another hard pass here.

I used to drink jack, Dr Pepper and green monster. Had very similar results.

Ernest Hemingway was a big fan. It varies a lot from brand to brand. Yes, licorice is the predominate flavor, but there are others. Requires a technique to properly serve (mix gently with water). It’s also not cheap.

Absinthe: For boozers who are too hip for normal likker but too square to do drugs.

Just give me a shot of bourbon and a line of blow and keep that nasty black licorice shit away from me.
