Preparing your absinthe the theatrical way
Absinthe is among the most popular drinks not only in France but across Europe and even in the United States. But it is more than just a tasty alcoholic beverage, it’s a ritual. To prepare your absinthe, you begin by pouring about an ounce of the greenish liquid into an absinthe glass. On top of the glass you place a flat, slotted spoon on which a single sugar cube rests. And now comes the theatrical variation on traditional French ritual, performed by Johnny Depp’s character in the 2001 film From Hell. Soak the sugar with absinthe first, and then set it on fire, allowing the heat to melt the sugar before you mix in the drink. Finally, you stir the liquid with the spoon, and then drink.
