Absinthe

One of the ironies about living in this particular Muslim country is that you can buy Absinthe. So we did this past weekend. It’s a pretty good authentic Verte with all the herbal flavorings of the greening process. It contains thujone which is says does not exceed 35mg per kg. We were afraid to drink too much, but now that I know the effect I will see if I can reach the next level. As it was I only had flashing and subtle exaltations of genius-awakening which may well have been brought on by the cooler temperatures we’ve been having.

We forgot to pack our absinthe spoon when we moved out here. This worked just as well though and added the right amount of Parmesan flavor.
