Ingredients in Authentic Absinthe

Do you know what three herbs are always found in authentic absinthe? This is basic absinthe knowledge that we want every Lucid fan to have.

fresh herbs

Here’s a tough question for you. Do you know what non-essential herbs can be found in absinthe? That means herbs that aren’t required but that add flavor.

do you know what herb this is

ANSWERS:

The three herbs that are always found in authentic absinthe are: artemisia absinthium, green anise, and sweet fennel.

As for non-essential herbs, two of them are hyssop and lemon balm.  They can be found in absinthe but are not required for the absinthe to be authentic. The herbs that are lighter in flavor and aroma are not put in the distillation; they are added after the distillation. That is where absinthe gets additional layers of flavor.

A poem about the green fairy, written by a Lucid Absinthe fan:

She kissed me softly, and the numbness set in.
She tasted of licorice, and was cold to my skin.

We danced slowly at first, getting to know one another.
She was familiar but different, and unlike any other.

I knew I couldn’t leave her, she grabbed a hold of my heart.
From this day forward, we would never be apart.

It was my first time, I held on just barely.
I fell in love with her that night, my beautiful Green Fairy.
