Excuse my lack of knowledge, but why exactly is absinthe illegal in the states? Is there some particular ingredient in it or is the alcohol content too high?
I've had it once when I was younger, I do not recall the brand, I only know that it was extremely hard to get and made me have crazy nightmares after half a bottle of it. Classy I know but we were all young once
tongue numbing euphoria
A selection of absinthe-related glassware, all made from glass dosed with uranium dioxide. Under ultraviolet light this glass
showing a characteristic vivid lime-green fluorescence. Because of its mysterious greenish tinge even in daylight (caused by
the ultra violet rays present in sunlight), this type of glassware, first manufactured in the mid 19th century, was particularly
appropriate for use with absinthe.
