For the Absinthe Ritual you need an Absinthe Spoon. There are a lot of varieties of spoons on the market, as replicas of original pieces are nowadays made in larger quantities. An Absinthe Spoon differs in the material used, mostly they are produced out of brass, which is plated with chrome, silver or gold. An Absinthe spoon is used to prepare your Absinthe the most original way. You place the spoon on the glass, load it with one or two sugar cubes, the best ones are the individually wrapped absinthe sugar cubes from ALANDIA, and then you pour Absinthe over it.
The beam of Absinthe dissolves the sugar, but you still need the water out of an decanter to create the typical louche. The decanter is filled with ice cold water, once the water drips through the holes in the spoon into the green fairy the Absinthe changes its green color to milky white. We recommend a mixture of 1 part alcohol and 3 parts water, depending on the brand. Besides an Absinthe spoon you can also use a Grilles. This is a piece of designed metal with three small arms, which you have to place over the glass. It is the accessory for the advanced Absintheur and it has a very authentic look. When you posess one, you will feel like sitting in the Moulin Rouge, the famous Absinthe bar in Montmartre.

There exists as well nice history about Absinthe spoons connected with Hollywood. For the film Dracula by Francis Ford Coppola a spoon was needed for a sequence where Winona Ryder tries the green elixir. Francis F. Coppola demanded it from a collector in France, as at that time, Absinthe was still the forbidden and almost forgotten drink of the 19th century.
