Absynth and the Green Fairy
What is Absynth...? Maybe you do not exactly know what this liquor is all about. First of all absynth or absynthe is a synonym for Absinthe, which is an historical alcoholic drink, that was drunk for quite a while in Europe during the 19th century. Unfortunately it got banned and absinthe was illegal for a long period. But this has changed! Absynthe / absynth orAabsinthe is now legal everywhere in the world. In the USA the spirit was legalized in 2008. Other countries, almost all European countries, legalized absynthe by the beginning of the 21st century. In the USA Lucid absinthe was on of the first approved US Absinthes. The ingredient "thujone" is present in the oil of the wormwood plant (artemisia absinthium) that gives the Green Fairy its magic effect. Legal Absinthe in the USA is sold at reduced levels of 10mg max. thujon. In Europe a legal level of 35mg thujon is allowed.
