Product Description

Our newest absinthe spoon is a replica of a traditional spoon called Les Cuilleres with a separate sugar cradle in the middle of the handle. Some of the larger absinthe glasses can only be used with this type of spoon. Used for serving absinthe in the time-honored way these absinthe spoons are made exclusively for La Boheme UK. We use stainless steel for our Absinthe spoons. This material makes the spoon durable for a long lifetime. This spoon looks good, feels good.

Absinthe serving instructions
First, pour roughly three ounces of absinthe into a heavy parfait-style stemmed absinthe glass. A perforated absinthe spoon (sometimes very elaborately so) is set upon the rim of the glass and on the spoon is placed a cube of sugar. Ice-cold water is ever so slowly dripped from a glass carafe designed specifically for that purpose, onto the cube. The sugar dissolves and you continue pouring until the ratio of absinthe to water is about two to five parts, depending upon your taste and fortitude. Give the absinthe drink a spin with the spoon and drink like you dripped - slowly.

Did you know that...?
There is an evidence that unscrupulous absinthe producers in the nineteenth century, in an effort to lower their costs, added a variety of toxic chemicals to their absinthe - such as a copper compound used to provide a green color.
