Have you ever wanted to know what it feels like to have a skull made of glass? Read on…
Absinthe, Absinth, Absinth. Is it legal? Will it make you go mad, lob off your ear and gift it to a hooker? At 69% Alcohol does it kill Covid? Does the Hulk bleed it? Can you clean the grime off the engine of a 1991 imported Mk2 Toyota MR2? And how long will a friend lie in the fetal position on a driveway after drinking 3/4’s of a bottle?
All good questions. All questions we have no idea what the answers are.
Well, with the exception of the last two, which are, yes, but it’s an expensive way to clean a car engine. And, around 3 hours give or take.
So if you’re planning on a lie down on a driveway or fancy taking a dive into post-impressionist oil painting you’re going to need;
- Absinthe (do check it’s legal where you are)
- Glasses (we used a massive glass Skull called Walter)
- Sugar cubes (like the ones you feed to horses)
- A Slotted Spoon (our slotted spoon came with the bottle of Absinthe)
- An Absinthe fountain or some means of dripping cold water
We’re going to go out on a limb here and say that you don’t have a traditional Absinthe fountain, they are bloody cool though.
We are going to assume you have a sink with a tap.
- Pour 1oz/30ml of absinthe into your glass
- Place a slotted spoon over the glass, put a sugar cube on it and slowly drip water over the top so it dissolves into the glass. You should look to have about four to six parts water per one part absinthe.
- Give it a stir and “enjoy”
Other methods involve fire. Which we’re not going to tell you how to do because we don’t like lawyers, even if they’re defending us from you because you got drunk and burned your house down.
The last option is to just fill a shot glass and neck it. Just don’t you heathen.
What ever your chosen method you can be sure that you’re going to feel like you’ve got a fragile skull the next day.
