The Green Fairy

Absinthe is legal again in the US, and apparently nobody was quite sure why Absinthe was banned. The drink is mostly hype, a strong liquor that has an ingredient, thujone, that is dangerous in large amounts. I've tried it and was never paid a visit by the green fairy, and never felt anything other than the intoxicating effects of consuming alcohol. Absinthe is just another drink, romanticized and made notorious by bohemians. For a less strong but still sweet drink, I'd recommend a good tawny port over a glass of absinthe any day.
