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!
