WHAT?

I can't hear you.

I've cut off my ears.

When will we ever stop seeing these hallucinogenic properties.

Yeah, ain't it just like Ted to get in with a group like "Scottish Courage". If I know Ted (I don't) I'm sure he'd jump at the chance to use his product to help support the practice of binge drinking and absinthe as an halucinogen.
Can someone help me with Gaelic, does courage over there mean the same as idiot over here?

Re: "Why are they concerned that packaging absinthe with beer will suddenly induce binge drinking? I don't get it. "

Because they're idiots. But we've all seen that before. The press, as it were, pumps anything for a news story when they're bored. Absinthe still has that certain caché I guess.

And, regarding the absinthe and lager chaser, remember, the UK is the place that spawned Red Bull and Vodka martini's. *AND* Marmite.

Nasty seems to be quite popular in that neck of the woods.

Red Bull and Hills cocktails now....

?

Mebbe not.

First, straight absinthe + lager chaser sounds nasty.
Second, it sounds like the absinthe in question is actually one of the lower alcohol content ones (45%). Why are they concerned that packaging absinthe with beer will suddenly induce binge drinking?
I don't get it.
