a place for rebels who love the forbidden drink

This page is for those who like absinthe or are just curious about the forbidden drink. For those of you who don't know, absinthe was an alchoholic bevrage that was consumed by the bohemian artists and writers of the nineteenth centuries. It is now illegal in the U.S., and the information on this page is just that, information. We here claim no responsibilty for any results that come from using this information for any reason other than educational. I will put recipes here as I get them ready, as most of the ones that have are the original recipes and are for manufacturing bulk quantities. If you have any recipes that you would like presented, e-mail me. I will also be including people's experiences with absinthe if you e-mail them to me.
