If you want slightly more buzz than regular alcohol while experiencing a unique new taste
then you can certainly enjoy amazing absinthe effects by drinking absinthe moderately. Absinthe is also referred to as absinthe green fairy due to its green color and is a potent liquor which has caught the attention of drinkers all around the globe after staying in hiatus for many decades.
Absinthe or absente as many people refer to this uniquely flavored drink has been in existence since early 1800s. This green colored milky drink is produced primarily from Artemisia Absinthium or Grande Wormwood along with other herbs and ingredients including anise and fennel. However, it is the presence of the potent chemical thujone in wormwood that makes the resultant absinthe drink into an extremely strong one with high proof levels. Absinthe was earlier used as a medicine during wars and also used to expel worms from stomachs of patients.
Absinthe alcohol became popular in America and Europe in the mid 1800s and people soon began to flock bars and cafes for a glimpse and taste of the green fairy. Absinthe alcohol was too strong to get ingested directly and drinkers had to pour a small amount of the green liquid into an absinthe glass over which a unique perforated absinthe spoon was placed. A sugar cube was then placed above the glass and cold water was slowly poured on the cube, which in turn flowed into the glass through the perforations.
The resultant absinthe drink would be a milky green alcoholic drink with high potency levels as compared to other alcoholic drinks, especially if a reduced amount of water was put into the drink. Compared to other alcoholic drinks that only generated a heady buzz, absinthe effects also believed to include hallucinations, muscle spasms, convulsions and would even evoke violence among its drinkers. However, the majority of the tests were conducted in the last century and did not provide adequate proof since most drinkers also used to consume alcohol in other forms. Thus, even though absinthe was banned in most countries, it’s started to legally re-appear in stores and online stores ever since the ban has been lifted in many countries in Europe as well as in the USA in the late 90s.
The dangerous outcomes of consuming drinks made from real absinthe were also tracked to high amounts of thujone present in wormwood. Most countries now have rules that specify the maximum amount of thujone that can be contained in each kg of wormwood. Drinkers in addition have seen that absinthe drinks need to be diluted to appropriate levels to enjoy that happy buzz. Modern brewing and distilling methods have also managed to remove excess thujone from absinthe to make it into a safe drink. There are numerous absinthe brands available in the market and you could also legally buy absinthe online in most countries. In addition to traditional green absinthe, you can also drink red and black absinthe in bars located all around the globe or even order these colored drinks to your house.
Contrary to previous beliefs, the effects of drinking absinthe are roughly the same as other alcoholic drinks. Nevertheless, since absinthe is in itself a very potent drink, it is very important dilute it to the required levels in order to enjoy its taste as well as enjoy amazing absinthe effects which will follow once you drink this unique drink in reasonable levels.
