I knew that there was a drink very similar to Absinth that was available legally around here but I didn’t know that the actual “legendary” drink is legal! We’re so cool :). I remember in years past “Crème de menthe” was popular around christmas time, maybe it’s time to start a new tradition with a green drink…

You can also make it at home. Rather simple, really.
Vodka, wormwood, some other spices, and sugar.
A green drink? How about some Chartreuse?
Ah yes, Chartreuse. You mentioned that, haven’t tried it yet though.
Absinth is also legaly back in France (and Europe) since 2002. I’ve found a few days ago some bottle of “Libertine” in Alsace (East of my country). More details (in french) on my blog (I don’t have trackbacks system).
