Of course, 15oz absinthe and a couple of ice cubes could do ;-)

16 oz glass...filled to oz that means about 2.5oz absinthe and 12.5oz water (5:1 ratio). huge glass indeed.

Shiloh, this king-size glass is for two-fisted absinthe drinkers with a man-sized thirst. So, belly up to the zinc bar and have a tall one! You know that Verlaine would!

Hi Absinthespoon ... don't worry. The good news is that most eBay buyers don't read this forum, and even fewer would be willing to buy a case of 12 gargantuan glasses (which is the minimum quantity sold by the wholesellers). Even I wouldn't purchase a case! However, I'd be happy to buy one of these glasses, just for fun, for $15+ ... and so would others around here :-)

This is true and goes for the sellers as well. Some of the items in the eBay absinthe topic are ridiculous. Although, they must sell a hell of a lot of mass printed posters.

Now, we just find a good K-Mart fountain to sell...that's where the bucks are.

I thought this was our little secret Chev! Oh well... Luckily not all eBay absinthe paraphenalia buyers read this forum.

Cheers!

16oz. glasses seem rather large, if you ask me :\

Just a suggestion: Buy a dozen glasses. Keep one or more; sell the rest on eBay.

And when you're at home, sipping a tall green one and counting all the money you'll have made on eBay, why not think of Chevalier and send him a glass? Seriously! :-)

(BTW, this particular glass isn't made in any other size.)

Heavy pressed glass. Tall (8.5"). Made by a U.S. company. Cheaply priced! Anyone want to know more?
