- Does anyone here have a tried and true recipe for absinthe?
I have tried some of the pre-packaged herbal kits out there with some
moderate success, but I am looking to produce something with more of a high
quality french absinthe flavor. I am really fond of the Un Emile 68, but
at the same time Id like to have the traditional green finish. I usually
use peppermint, hyssop, star anise and anise seed as my finishing herbs to
give it a little more of the louche kick.
thanks in advance
Yes – tried a few recipes all good – Got my herbs and 1 kilo of wormwood from a company in the UK called Herbmoon Hollow – supposedly for wicca / druidic magic got all sorts there, calamus root, gentian root, pine resin (retsina) – you name it, they got it
Cheers from Peers
BTW Prestige Absinthe essence is also very good and is a lot less hassle but not as much fun
BTW2 – Not that I’ve tried smoking it but wormwood doesn’t half smell like cannabis – wonder what a sniffer dog would think!! lol
Has anyone ever attempted Absinthe with a wormwood/herb maceration?
I've read quite a bit on the subject and have some seemingly close recipes. I'd like to discuss it with anyone who has attempted it or succeeded... I love the stuff, just a bit too spendy.
