a place for rebels who love the forbidden drink
This page is for those who like absinthe or are just curious about the
forbidden drink. For those of you who don't know, absinthe was an alchoholic
bevrage that was consumed by the bohemian artists and writers of the nineteenth
centuries. It is now illegal in the U.S., and the information on this page is
just that, information. We here claim no responsibilty for any results that come
from using this information for any reason other than educational. I will put
recipes here as I get them ready, as most of the ones that have are the original
recipes and are for manufacturing bulk quantities. If you have any recipes that
you would like presented, e-mail me. I will also be including people's experiences
with absinthe if you e-mail them to me.
