Can you tell me about the" Green Fairy"?!

Question: Can you tell me about the" Green Fairy"!?
I can across some Lucid "Absinthe" today!. I've heard all these stories about it and I want to know what you think about it and what stories have you heard!. Unfortunately I only have about 8 oz!. of the stuff, that should do it right!? Is it really all that big of a deal!. I've never had a 124 proof spirit!. I'm excited!.
also!.!.!. is it cool if I just mix it with suguar water instead to get that milky thing going on!? I'm thinking about that or champagne!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Lucid Absinthe is not the real thing!. Its actually a fake Absinthe!. The only way to get Absinthe is by ordering it Online from Europe and having it shipped to you!. Which is rather expensive!. Absinthe does not make you see things!. There are 2 ways to drink absinthe the French way and the Czech way!. The French way is you get an absinthe Spade/Spoon!. Put a sugar cube on it and pour water over the sugar cube into the absinthe!. Then it becomes that milky white!. the Czech Way is to Take a spoonful of Sugar dip it int he absinthe, take it out light it on fire let it on fire let it Caramel then dunk it in the absinthe and stir!. But I am pretty sure Sugar water will turn it the milky color!. Just to warn you though!. Absinthe has a taste like no other!. It taste like Sambucka mixed with Jager!. Very strong!. 124proof is actually weak for absinthe!. I've seen it go as high as 180 proof!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

It is mostly hype that I've experienced!. I've bought & sampled about 2 dozen brands/styles of Absinthe and have had no head trip experiences!. It's a high proof alcohol that (traditionally) tastes like black licorice, that's about all!. If you want take a shot of it & mix it with some Coke/Pepsi (or other cola drink, even a Cherry Coke variety tastes good)!. The main thing is if it's a true absinthe it'll be strong (high alcohol content) so mix it at @ a 1 to 3 ratio with whatever you use!. And enjoy, I like it myself cuz I think it tastes great!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

i suggest you mix it with sugar and water!. pour the absinthe over a sugar cube light it on fire then followed by the water!.!. you will get the "louche" or the milky white stuff going on!.!.!. definately a hyped experience not worth the money!.!. i have traveled and tried quite a few absinthes looking for the green fairy experience to no avail!.!.!.

dont mix it with champagne!.!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
