Dispelling the Myths about Absinthe:
Drinking absinthe does not drive you crazy. It doesn’t contain hemlock. It is not illegal in the USA. And while it does contain wormwood, so does vermouth. Absinthe contains trace elements of a compound found in wormwood called Thujone, (not related to the THC of cannabis fame). Absinthe is an alcoholic drink made from Artemisia absinthium (a plant better known as grand wormwood) and a range of other herbs. Absinthe first gained notoriety in the latter part of the 19th century, when it became the drink of choice among bohemian intellectuals, writers, poets and artists in France and across Europe. Soon, the emerald green liquor was consumed by people from all walks of life. While the lower classes celebrated l’heure verte (the green hour) in Parisian bars and cafés, painters and poets created art and poems dedicated to La Fee Verte (the “Green Fairy”) as the drink became known. The Fairy reached the shores of America, where it became especially popular in New Orleans. Absinthe was traditionally served with chilled water poured over a sugar cube that was placed on a perforated spoon resting on the top of the glass (a ritual known as La Louche).
