absinthe - scary drink!

i just discoverd that they serve absinthe at my local. i did a shot and it blew my head off! i wanna do it more often. but its a bit scary. good for a short night out i suppose. just get a shot of absinthe followed by some smirnoff ices. or maybe some double vodkas if i wanna be really drunk. it certainly is good for getting you there on a low budget. i'd never do two shots of that stuff tho, so its a bit risky. anyway, anyone had any absinthe expieriences. i get it down trinity bar near where i live. which is quite cool.

Re: absinthe - scary drink!

ooof....be careful with that. I shared a bottle with some friends back on Christmas Eve 2004 and holy shit did it mess me up. I didn't even drink that much (did the water/ice/sugar cube thing).

such lovely packaging though.

I'll stick with dry white wine, champagne or gin.

Re: absinthe - scary drink!

just one small shot of that stuff, was enough to literally blow my head off. like drinking several vodkas. so yes you would get quite drunk on a very small amount. it goes to your head because its such high volume alchohol, you're doing alot in such a small burst all at once. if you drank that stuff from the bottle, then i'm impressed. i was a bit scared just doing a small shot. but thats because hard substances do make me nervous. so a was getting psychological shit, because i'm basically a wimp. i think the stuff i did was 68% vol.

Re: absinthe - scary drink!

I went to an absinthe tasting at Delilah's in Chicago a year or so ago (got to try over a dozen or 24 kinds).

Although it's finally "legal" in America, I don't think it has the hallucinogenic ingredient like how you find in Europe, but it's still damn strong.

Re: absinthe - scary drink!

the hallucinogenic experience supposedly happens to those who drink it regularly and build up somewhat of a tolerance (so they can drink more of it).

Re: absinthe - scary drink!

one shot of absinthe and two double vodkas is enough for me in one night. i can take my alchohol, but i can still tell when i've had alot. maybe do one shot, and just have a few smirnoff ices, actually. do the double vodkas too and i'd be mega pissed!

Re: absinthe - scary drink!

i've been guilty of that sort of thing in my vegas (yeah i've been there) past. now i drink more sencibly. just do one shot of bloody absinthe. maybe one day i'll never drink alchohol and be ultra clean, like i did in my early twenties (when stereolab was big). might become vegetarian once again too. f%&k burger king!
