Traditional way of drinking absinthe. For absinthe drip, a special item called an "absinthe spoon" with holes is used. The essential oil of the herb contained in absinthe reacts with water to form a cloudy white color, and the change to a very mysterious hue is a major attraction. The bitter taste peculiar to medicinal herbs is alleviated, making it easy to drink. This is a way to enjoy the original taste and aroma of absinthe. If you do not have an absinthe spoon handy, use a fork instead.
