Here’s a great recipe that’s perfect for the holidays. First, heat up some red wine (Merlot works well) in which you’ve placed a cinnamon stick or two and a few whole cloves. After heating, let the cinnamon and cloves steep for a while to draw out the essential oils. Then remove the cinnamon and cloves. Add some Suisse LaBleue Clandestine and a little bit of sugar. This one tastes great, will warm you up, and give you a nice buzz. Enjoy!

There’s a Mexican honey-anise liquor called Xtabentun (pronounced shta-ben-toon) that is excellent with absinthe, especially the LaBleues. You mix 1 shot of absinthe to 1/2 shot of Xtabentun to 8 ounces of ice water, no sugar. The Xtabentun really brings out the floral taste of the LaBleues. It also has some psychoactive properties that are enhanced by the thujone in absinthe. It’s actually kind of rare and you can get it in Mexico or by doing a search on the internet. It may be hard to find, but it’ll be worth the effort once you try it.
Hi, besides drinking Absinthe the classic way with water, I´m wondering what other ways exist to enjoy it. Any experiences?
