Ah, alas! while America is the land of the free & the etc., etc., etc. We must drink Absente' (sans wormwood) or one offering of Absinthe, Lucid. One is better than none!
High in the Rocky Mountains, high, Le Fee whispers with the pines & brooks, of scenes, rhyme & songs. Just a drop more cool spring water & the layers of life will be rife with rhythm! Weep not for me, Argentina!

About the Green Fairy
Where there is a will, there is a way, and folks do go out of their way for a chance to meet the "Goddess" -- like the guy who claims the Green Fairy can be summoned by soaking wormwood in alcohol. Well, no, it cannot... sorry, but it just doesn't work like that. Unless you own a still, there is no way you will ever make real absinthe at home.
(I'm beginning to wonder why we called this part useful links...)
Anyhow, let's move onto the useful / interesting stuff... This page would not be complete without mentioning MsJekyll's Green Fairy page. A modern-day absinthe icon, MsJekyll published an absinthe website years before the current absinthe revival. Been there, done that - well before the current bunch of absinthe 'experts' appeared on the web. Don't miss MsJekyll's poetry - dark but beautiful.
