Notorious absinthe pours again

An outlawed name is returning to Iowa nearly a century after banishment.

Absinthe, a high-proof, anise-flavored liquor once called "the green curse of France," will be available here later this month for the first time since 1912, said Lynn Walding of the Iowa Department of Alcoholic Beverages.

"It's not the true absinthe of Victorian lore," Walding said. "That's still banned by the federal government."

The legal version, Lucid Absinthe Supérieure, lacks a mind-altering substance thought to have imbued the absinthe of lore, legendary for liquoring up the likes of Pablo Picasso, Jules Verne, Vincent Van Gogh, Oscar Wilde, Edgar Allan Poe, and Ernest Hemingway.

"Thujone is a toxic chemical present in wormwood and has a similar molecular geometry to that of THC, the active chemical in cannabis,'' according to absinth.com, a Web site that sells absinthe and the glassware and spoons commonly used to serve the drink.
