Our good friend R. Winston Guthries’ most excellent book “A Taste For Absinthe” has been out in hardback for a while now. Autographed copies are available at our sister site Alandia. I am am very pleased to announce it is now available as an eBook.
Today is National Absinthe Day here in the US. It’s the 5th anniversary of absinthe being legalized here. I hope everyone dances with the Green Fairy today. I sure will as soon as I get off work . Cheers to all!
All of us here at Absinthe.FM would like to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas (or whatever holiday you celebrate) and a Happy New Year. We hope your holidays are very green, if you know what I mean .
This really cool antique absinthe decanter has a unique hour glass design. It’s been filled with green water so you can see the details better. The design is deceptive – the clear spaces between the outer tubes and the inner tube are solid glass, so it’s not as delicate as it appears. This heavy piece is a big 14 1/2 inches tall and holds an impressive liter and a half of absinthe.
Scientists at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN. are doing genetic engineering expiraments in an effort to develope an HIV vaccine. They combined some genes from a jellyfish with those of a cat (it’s true). The result is this glow in the dark kitty. The picture has not been re-touched, this is not a hoax, and there is no black light on the cat. It just glows. I guess you could call it La Feeline Verte. I WANT ONE! While this really has nothing to do with absinthe (except the color) I just thought it was so trippy I had to write about it. Oh, and by the way, they also come in neon-red (it’s true, I swear to God)
