Living in the U.K. I suppose I'm luckier than those of you in the U.S.A.,in regards to the range of different Absinthes avaliable to me(i.e. Thujone and alcohol levels).Am saving up for a basic 2 tap fountain which should cost around £45.Until then I'm having to use a glass dripper,and syrup(1:1 sugar to water),but sat at the table,you can still sit and watch 'the louche' occur,and the end result is much the same.3 glasses in and the daily grind seems to melt away.Enjoy.

About the absinthe ritual
Absinthe.se is one reliable website that has a short how-to guide to the classic French ritual. They resolutely condemn (and refuse to provide instructions for) the modern-day "fire method".
Instructions for both rituals -- the traditional French one and the recent fire one -- are available at DrinkNation.com.
