Might as well drink straight bourbon... if you like that burning sensation, at least you'll get some taste out of it...

We tried to warn him, but he insisted...

Well, it is high in alcohol, a weeeeee bit stronger than most any shot he might be used to. The intense throat-burning thing might have had some impact; that's why most people don't do absinthe (or Hill's) shots. :)

Sorry, the camera doesn't work so well in the hot tub. Apparently wet film can't develop properly or some crazy nonsense like that.

Perhaps this will help. At first, he looked mildly perturbed, like when you eat a lemon. But then his jaw dropped and his eyes went really wide then really narrow then really wide again. He just kind of sat there like that making some sort of gasping noise.

Yes, you should have seen the expression on the face of another friend who tried a shot of Hill's.

My friend, after long desiring absinthe finally went to the liquor store and to his grave misfortune bought a bottle of Hill's.

I got an ICQ message from him sometime after his second or third glass proclaiming absinthe to be the best thing ever created.

It turns out he somehow managed to drink just over half the bottle in about an hour!

He brought his bottle of Hill's to my get together a few days ago and was unable to even take more than a few sips from his glass. He couldn't even finish the glass of Absente I gave him, because he could only taste Hill's when he drank it. He seemingly "forgot" his bottle at my place and is in no big hurry to pick it up, but he is looking forward to trying something better.
