I think I've seen a recipe somewhere for a Monkey Gland cocktail, so I'll look it up and post it.

CHRIS.


From CocktailDB.com:

Monkey Gland

Shake with ice and strain
2/3 dry gin (2 oz, 6 cl, 1/2 gills)
1/3 orange juice (1 oz, 3 cl, 1/4 gills)
2 dashes absinthe
2 dashes grenadine
Shake
Serve in a cocktail glass (4.5 oz)

On another note, the Travel Channel showed the "Why the French Don't Suck" episode of Anthony Bourdain's "No Reservations" in which Tony gets plastered on Absinthe and tries to sleep in the room where Oscar Wilde died after a 3 year Absinthe bender. Anyway, they were explaining the difference between "Legal" and "Illegal" French Absinthes, and that you'd need to drink about 200 glasses of Absinthe before the Thujone would start to affect your system, and you'd probably be dead from the high alcohol content long before then.

What kind did you get from that site, and about how much did it cost to get it delivered?

I am still really interested in trying Absinthe, but have been turned off by the cost of delivery and the potential for it being seized.

My dream would be to find a place that I can order Absinthe and Cuban Rum, at a decent price, and not have to worry about it being seized.

Oh, man....does that picture of Mari Mayans ever bring back memories! Or, lack of memories!! I still think that my lost-year-of-absinthe may have burned a hole in my brain. Mari's had a beautiful louche, but I eventually had to quit when I was just drinking it straight. A LOT of it! Ugh.

If you could drink that stuff straight and you can still spell your name, that is amazing!. I tried a sip of the fees and had to wash it down with brandy (only thing close) to keep from choking to death!.

Have a few in the French tradition (no fire, thanks) and put on the classic silent film "Phantom of the Opera" w/Lon Chaney. Suddenly it all makes sense.

Yeah the "Kreepy Tiki" crew from Miami came over to our vending area for me to do a shot of this stuff with'em at the Hukilau. Wasn't too bad. Lit me up though.......Tasted kinda like liquorish to me, which I do not like. Don't remember halucinating or anything though....unfortunately.

Tiki G: I was wondering what that stuff was they were passing around. They were serving capfuls up to people then taking pictures of their reactions.

Been interested in getting Absinthe for a while, you know, just for the bottles *wink*

Capfuls, ECCH!, like I said before, hitting on this stuff straight is VILE!!!. I can down sips of chartruse, but not abbe!.The bottle on the right called absente, it is "legal in the USA absinthe" with out the wormwood. If you have nothing , or pals with no taste, this is the stuff, kinda "absinthe light'!. For $36.00 with glass and spoon, it was well worth it!. The green chartruse is pictured cuz it is a damn fine cousin of abbe. The collection grows.....

Two Wheelin', it looks like somebody dropped a bundle on their little absinthe habit. I like the LaFee's also, but any idea how to get some of this?



It's Italian and has none of the anise flavor of most products, so of course there is no louche. My friend brought a bottle back for me and I'd love to re-stock!

2 Wheelin Tiki:

Green Chartreuse is a cousin of Absinthe? Not hardly....mabeye a step second cousin thrice removed on a weird religious Uncle's side.
Got to agree with you, however, how fantastic it is. Do you know that only two men on Planet Earth know exactly what is in Chartreuse, and how it is made? They ain't talking..some kind of religious vow. They even add many chemicals and herbs to the waste residue from distillation so other corporate distillers cannot analyze and synthesize a similar formula.

Try to find some of Ted Breaux's French Absinthe's to add to your growing collection. They are expensive, but will BLOW your dome, homeboy.
