From what I just read:

According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, "The importation of Absinthe and any other liquors or liqueurs that contain Artemisia absinthium is prohibited."

Although, they say you can brew your own but it needs to be distilled in order to be truely called absinthe. HTH

I tried it last weekend at a party without realising what it was. I saw a guy serving it up, so I thought, "Hey, I'll give that a go." I was already half-cut and proceeded to get fully-cut as the night went on, but I seem to recall it went something like this...

He poured it into a glass, lit it and let it burn for a few seconds, moving the glass around so that it was getting totally coated inside with residue.

After he blew it out, I drank it straight down, then gave him the glass back. He filled it with ice and placed a card over it. Some kind of smoke began to form in the glass.

He handed me a straw, partially lifted the card and told me to breathe in the smoke with the straw, which I did.

Did it affect me? Couldn't tell ya. I'd been drinking Corona's and frozen coktails before hand and kept on downing them afterwards, so I don't know what effect it might have had.

Sure had a great night, though!




In God, we trust; all others must provide data.
