Sjennon sees Czechia - Have you tried Absinthe?

in #travellast year

Green fairies and other crazy hallucinations is what it promises

Maybe I somehow drank it on one of those nights where you wake up with a pounding headache and a massive gap in your memory. But at least sober and consciously, I never drank it on purpose.

I mean.. up until now.

We stepped in this Absintherie. A cutesie little shop at the corner of a street. It was quite dark in there and somehow smelled kind of musty. To be completely fair, I felt like I stepped in another era. There were shelves - dusty, stocked with bottles of all the types of Absinthe you could imagine. To be completely fair, I didn't know it was such a thing. So many varieties and so many ways of serving it.

As my eyes slid over the menu consisting over at least 50 different types of Absinthe, I heard familiar chatter to my left. Ah. Dutch people. I looked over and asked them about their choice and based on their's I also chose mine.

Hello Beetle Absinth 70%, 35 mg/l of thujone

So I happily ordered and then this guy behind the bar still had to prepare it. Prepare it what? Yes! He just sets the entire shit on fire with a sugar cube and BAMBOOM, you got that shit served.

I’ve tried absinthe before and had a great time with it lol, but never bothered to brave it again, I don’t think my body can recover the way it used to in my younger years
