This absinthe spoon is a chromium plated replica of les fleches. This spoon has been uniquely crafted and commissioned for Absinthe Original to allow absintheurs the ability for traditional absinthe serving, as was done in the 19th century.
Absinthe serving instructions:
First you 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. True absintheurs used to take great care in adding the water, letting it fall drop by single drop onto the sugar cube. Give the absinthe drink a spin with the spoon and drink like you dripped - slowly.
