How do you drink absinthe?

Does absinthe need sugar?

Absinthia Organic Absinthe – No sugar needed!

Absinthia believes that absinthe should taste delicious. Well balanced, not too bitter, not too harsh. She feels that many absinthes require sugar to mask the flavor. Absinthia Organic Absinthe is well crafted with certified organic ingredients and has a natural sweetness. She recommends 2.5:1 cold water to absinthe without sugar.

Can I light absinthe on fire?

NO! I mean, please don’t. Lighting absinthe on fire really damages it, and we work very hard to craft a high quality, organic absinthe. It was never traditional, either. Lighting absinthe on fire was started in Eastern Europe in the 1990s as a way to gain attention and sell it illegally on the internet. We have lots of absinthe cocktail recipes on our site. Please refer to these and keep your matches in your pocket!

How do I enjoy absinthe?

A traditional way to enjoy absinthe is as a louche. We like Absinthia Organic Absinthe with 2.5:1 cold water:absinthe. Because of the ingredients we use, our absinthe is never harsh or bitter. Absinthia Organic Absinthe, no sugar needed!
