It might have been a lame comment, but you responded by getting defensive.

Yo, relax bro!

"I put a smallish measure in a cocktail shaker with A LOT of ice, shake like hell, and strain it ... Am I to be whipped for bastardizing absinthe ettiquette, or is this type of behaviour acceptable?"

Absinthe frappe. 500 million served in New Orleans before they drove old Dixie down.

At the first cool sip
on your fevered lip,
you determine to live through the day
life’s again worthwhile
as with a dawning smile
you imbibe your absinthe frappe
– Glenn MacDonough, sung by Victor Herbert
Very big song in the early part of the 20th Century

"helluva lot more cleaver ..."

How bout them beaver cleavers,
Ain't they rank?
Cleavin them beavers,
down on the bank ...

Written and sung by Mason Williams (Classical Gas) in the 1960s some time.

"Ward, have you seen the Beaver?"

June Cleaver, 1956.

"No, raise up that starched skirt and show us!"

Eddie Haskel, peeping through the window.

"Winona had a big brown beaver ... " etc.

But the beaver tried to leave her. So she whacked him ginst the fence. So sang Les Claypool of Primus, I think.

With all due respect to admin, I apologize and will refrain from further flaming.

For the record however, If you look down the thread a bit you will see that Mr. Pigeon started the flames by firing two shots before I responded (the mommie bit and the cock bit). If you check all 94 posts you wont see any real flaming by me Maybe a few smart*ss comments, but no real flames until after the two aforementioned cheap shots.

Now I know finger pointed aint good either, but thems the facts and I was just responding to Pigeon's comments in kind.

Oh thank you high and mighty blabberpuss.
The cock part of the sentence was not the object, it was the "after dinner dink" before it.

Lost? You're correct for once. I lost by responding to you. I should just ignore you, like the rest of the informed absinthe world.

Face it you lost.

My pointing out your fruedian "Like lame. Dick" (with or without the period) is a helluva lot more cleaver that you shortening cocktail to cock. Nothing wrong with potty humor (assuming that it is actually funny and not lame like your drivel).

Anyway, you are tiring me with your lameness. I am done with you for now.

A period seperated the two words. Sorry no freudian slip there.
... and, if your supposition were true, I would have an affinity for you. Which I do not.

I like lame. Dick and fart jokes are my staple .

As for you, blabber, too bad your attitude is preventing you from attaining the knowledge you desire. No harmonious interaction for you, it's all about conflict and ego.

Sir Pigeon Shit,

I beleive it is your freudian iterpretation of a perfectly normal term that is commonly used when discussing libations that is causing the problem.

I suppose now that you will manage to come up with another freudian iterpretation of the term "libations".

This time, let's see if you can do better than the lame respose you provided initially.

I put a smallish measure in a cocktail shaker with A LOT of ice, shake like hell, and strain it into a tiny pre-chilled martini glass. Proly no more than a 3:1 dilution at most. I dont exactly shoot it down, but it doesnt last more than about 5 minutes either. Ummm tastey.



"An Absinthe Frappe from Heliopolis Palace, Cairo, in 1931.

. . . Merely turn 2 glasses of finely cracked ice into a chilled small shaker, add two 2-oz jiggers of absinthe and 1 tsp anis del mono, or French anisette. Shake quickly and hard. Pour out, ice and all; and a short straw, bright green in hue, is the final touch. This again produces a pearly white fluid at odds with the greenish liquid in bottle." -- Baker, Charles H. Jr., "The Gentleman's Companion: Vol. II, An Exotic Drinking Book", 1939, 1946.

Sound familiar?

"I do have to take issue with Artemis in regards to using glassware. I'll stick with my original statement that taking unnecessary risks is stupid."

If you're taking issue with the fact that boiling volatile solvents in glass is a common practice in even the most rudimentary chemistry lab, you're simply wrong, end of story.

I never said anything about taking unnecessary risks. I'll leave that to each individual to decide. What I said, as plainly as I could for anybody who can read a word or two between the lines, was that someone who knows what he's doing would not buy the stuff on that web page for the purported intent, and someone who doesn't, is taking a risk carrying out ANY chemistry procedure and shouldn't be fucking with it.

Last word from me on the subject.

Well, I guess I have been doing it all wrong. I tried the traditional water over the sugar cube thing in a tall glass and it is pretty good sitting outside in a hammock as a cool afternoon refesher. I actually even found out that I enjoy my chatreuse (40-dollar bottle of mouthwash) this way - in a tall glass, only with soda water, slice of lemon, lots-o-ice.

But I have found that I like absinthe best as an after dinner dink. I put a smallish measure in a cocktail shaker with A LOT of ice, shake like hell, and strain it into a tiny pre-chilled martini glass. Proly no more than a 3:1 dilution at most. I dont exactly shoot it down, but it doesnt last more than about 5 minutes either. Ummm tastey.

Am I to be whipped for bastardizing absinthe ettiquette, or is this type of behaviour acceptable?

Absinthe as a "long drink" is an aperitif, not a digestif. For digestif you might consider drinking a small bit of absinthe neat in a grappa glass. Generally the lower % alcohol absinthes would be better for this purpose.

Speaking of cooking. What meal is best served up prior to a couple of glasses of absinthe as digestif? Last weekend I fixed a pork loin stuffed with fennel (chopped green fennel, not fennel seeds) and onion dressing.

Was a pretty good meal with absinthe.

''You should also consider questions like "Can I cook ...''

Good point.

Another one : ''Can I identify the region from where a given wine come from in a blind tasting''

Very useful to make good absinthe (even if it`s not related to safety).


Hey! We`ve found a way to talk about *IT* without crossing the rules ! ;-)
