Absinthe is sometimes called a liqueur, but it is not. Liqueurs always contain a sweetener, but authentic absinthe such as Lucid contains no sugar or sweetener of any kind. Adding sugar is left to the discretion of the consumer.
Lucid Absinthe brings you a specialized gift set including: a bottle of the famous Absinthe, a unique Lucid glass, and a personalized balancier so that you can prepare absinthe the traditional way. Priced at $59.99, this set will be available nationwide in mid-September.
These are the classic ways to mix absinthe according to Harry Johnson’s Bartenders Manual, first published in 1882.
