A common misconception. The reputation that Absinthe received is not accurate. It's simply a higher volume of alcohol. It is not a hallucinogenic. I need to invest in a liquor company. A fancy one. Perhaps Absinthe related and bank off of myth.



That's one of the stranger posts from you....and you're absolutely correct...Absinthe has zero hallucinogenic properties which are not enjoyed by other alcoholic drinks…its just super high in alcohol content…That’s why some people light it before drinking it to reduce some of the alcohol..

Even the “real” stuff with Wormwood in it has had its hallucinogenic properties fictionalised…

The main thing about Absinthe is that the process of preparing it with sugar and spoon is quite an enjoyable ritual and the way it looks when it mixes with the sugar is fun…

Yes it is neat to play with fire while extremely intoxicated!And watching sugar melt and drip in to green stuff is nice, very nice.

So the hallucination stuff really is a myth, eh? The fucking absinthe spin machine is out of control! I thought when I had some of the stuff in Europe I was going to have a cosmic experience, but instead I only received a sizable bar tab.

The best bourbon I ever has was something a friend of mine brought back from Kentucky, Black Maple Hill bourbon -- it had been aged eight years or so.
The best bourbon I have in my house was a housewarming gift from the same friend: Elijah Craig 18 year single barrel
Hendrick's Gin is good stuff, but I'm not enough of a gin drinker to spend that kind of money regularly.

Most of my favorite mixed drinks have either Bailey's Irish Cream or Kahlua in them -- or both. Although, I do also really enjoy Jim Beam and Diet Coke with a dash of bitters.

This is high end tequila produced by a friend of the family. certified organic. very smooth. tequila, by definition needs to come from a certain region in Mex to be truly so-called, the same with champagne in france i believe. anyway this is it. You can bank of the myth of a harmonious spanish-indian fusion demonstrated through this fine liquor.

Does anyone have a kick-ass Sangria recipe? Having a dinner/ice cream party on Sunday and want a few nice pitchers of sangria. This is what I'm working off of right now, probably using spiced rum and something super-dry for the wine:

* 2 lemons
* 2 limes
* 2 oranges
* 3 cups rum
* 1 cup white sugar
* 2 (750 milliliter) bottles dry red wine
* 2 cups orange juice

I'll be chopping a ton of apples and pears also, which seem to soak up the booze and taste nice with all the other flavors, but wanted to see if anyone had other suggestions. I know one of my professors made a serious-ass one with 3 liquors (brandy as the main one) that blew me away, but it's his secret recipe.

The city of Tequila perhaps?

that's where a majority of the distilleries are.

They grow the Agave plants though mostly in Jalisco, Guanajato, and in some of the Michoacan.

City of Tequila is next to the City of Gold I think

I only used a little bit of sugar since I used some Arrowhead sparkling lime water instead of Sprite. But yeah, it was a big 1.5L bottle of cheap Vendange Merlot, about 1/2 cup of dark rum, and all the fruit basically. Turned out well, I added slightly more run to the 2nd batch and it kinds snuck up on me... woke up with a mild case of the spins for the first time in a long time ha.

Party was cool -- I used every utensil, pan, and storage container in my house it seems like, but everyone loved the food, especially the homemade pupusas, tortillas, and salsas. Got leftovers for the next week and didn't even get into the chicken and ground beef I bought.
