I had the usual debate (is vodka/wormwood swill really absinthe) with a buddy of mine who scored a bottle of the burning man stuff. He pulled the "if they've been doing it that way for years, they must be doing something right" argument.

I mentioned that my kid has been crapping in her pants for over a year - that doesn't make it any better.

He who would sacrifice liberty for security deserves neither.

The vile steep I once made (and, to my shame, served to others) came from a recipe concocted by someone who is part of that scene.

If someone showed up with a bottle of HG or Un Emile, I suspect they'd say "That's not real absinthe, maaaan... it doesn't HURT when you drink it."

The first "absinthe" I had ever tried was a few years ago from someone who brought it back from burning man. It was a vile concoction of vodka and "herbs" that I choked down neat. I felt as if I had been raped orally by a drunk xmas tree.

heard it's awful. as of 4 yrs ago it was vodka/wormwood etc.

Anyone here attend Burning Man? I heard from some friends there was an Absinthe camp, and they were passing out homemade absinthe. Just wondering if it was hogsmack or if it's the usual vodka/wormwood poison that's so popular in colleges these days.
