You're DOING IT WRONG!! FIRE + Absinthe = WRONG!!!

I've been a slack blogger lately-- what to say, now that absinthe is legal?!

Well, one thing for sure: YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG!!! I subscribe to a Flickr feed of all absinthe-tagged photos, and it seems like the "fire ritual" is the way most people are getting absinthe served to them. GAH!!!

It's as if beer was suddenly back after a long hiatus, and people forgot how to drink it, so everybody's drinking it out of a funnel because they just don't know any better. [sigh]

  1. I've been getting into it with even more bartenders than usual the past few weeks myself. People finally know what I'm talking about when I mention absinthe, they just don't know a damn thing about it.

    These pesky bartender only magnify this problem with their blasted fire obsession. I've had more than I can count SWEAR up and down that burning it makes no difference on the taste. Are you fucking kidding me? I want to do a "correction tour" where I travel the US for a month correcting these jackasses.
