A beautiful video of absinthe louching. There is something so relaxing about watching the water drip and the absinthe turn opaque
Here’s a video of absinthe drinking in a beautiful hotel in Paris. The video is very informative, except for the part at 1:07 where wormwood is claimed to have hallucinogenic properties. This is not true! Other than that, terrific video.
