    Mix it with champagne and a sugar cube and you have a cocktail called "Death in the Afternoon".
    Hemingway recommended only ever drinking 3 in a sitting.

    I think I'll stick with water, mainly because I don't want to leave the house again today, and I sure as hell don't want to drive right now. Think I'll read some Baudelaire and then hack off my ear for shits and giggles.

    Tried it once. 8 ounce Mini bottle. Tasted Awful, even when diluted with water and a sugar cube, as per instructions. Didn't do much but make me sleepy. Will do it again, but it's bloody expensive. Need more readily available funds for that.

    I've never tried it. I saw a bottle of it in a hotel in Amsterdam and it looked evil.

    If you don't like the flavour of anise, avoid it like the plague.

    There's a restaurant here that makes drinks with absinthe. I tried one. It was tasty, but I didn't feel anything. I think I probably needed to have more than one.

    How about some trippy cows?

    One of the French painters used to mix equal parts (I think 3 or 4) absinthe & cognac and called it: Tremblement de Terre. I won't be rushing back for a second.

    Isn't there a bar or building named that in New Orleans?
