Espresso with absinth shot
« on: 12/02/2003, 01:26 PM »
Last night, on a whim, I put a shot of La Fee absinthe into my espresso. I got my head back together at about 11.30 the following morning.

Go on, take a piece out of me. I'm the first in history to do this, society needs its visionaries.

"So 1982" would've been an insult in 1993, but in 2003 it has, to the amazement of many, become a compliment in certain music circles. And I shall take it as such.

Yes, I believe so, although there isn't a medical condition that hasn't been imputed to Van Gogh as the cause of his alleged insanity, so the role of absinth is controversial.

Other artists to fall under the spell of the green fairy were Toulouse-Laurec and Oscar Wilde.

My personal experience is that about 4 hours after my little variation on the Spanish espresso recipe (they use brandy I believe?), I was indeed entertaining thoughts of murder. However, I often feel this way without the assistance of absinth. It might have been the coffee, for example.
