"Have a shot of Absinth!!" Absinth Tip by svoures

Absinth, Prague: 1 reviews and 1 photos


Absinth is a very strong alcoholic liqueur made with herbal extracts, the main herb being wormwood. It is an emerald green drink with a distinctive taste. Manufactured according to the original French recipe, it has a volume of 70% alcohol and therefore, you should only drink a shot or two and no more. It is also believed that it has hallucigenic effects, so I cannot stress enough the importance of having only a shot or two of the stuff, just for the experience.
This particular brand shown in the picture is called 'Staroplzensky (L'OR)Absinth'.
