This alcoholic beverage has a long and complex history. It originated in the late 18th century in Switzerland, though other areas of Europe began producing this spirit shortly after its invention. The drink quickly grew in popularity, becoming a staple of the French upper class by the end of the 19th century. 

How Is Absinthe in Cyprus Special?

Real absinthe is a distilled spirit made of botanicals, herbs, and spices including grande wormwood, anise, fennel, and other medicinal and culinary herbs. It has a strong flavor that is often described as “bitter.” Its distinctive green color comes from the chlorophyll in the herbs used to make it. 

How to Drink It

Absinthe is typically served with a ritual involving dripping cold water over a sugar cube placed on a spoon, and the drink’s potency ranges from 45-89% alcohol content. It can be added to cocktails and enjoyed neat or on the rocks, but it is best enjoyed in its traditional French style — with a small amount of cold water and sugar. 

What Are Its Effects?

The drink has a reputation for being hallucinogenic, though this is not true; however, it does contain thujone, a chemical compound that can cause overindulgence. Its effects are pretty much like those of any other alcohol — lightheadedness and talkativeness, and when consumed in large doses, it can lead to loss of coordination. 

How to Pair It with Food

Real absinthe pairs well with a variety of foods, including meats, cheeses, salads, and desserts. It is also often used to flambé dishes or add flavor to soups and sauces. Its herbal notes make it a great choice for pairing with seafood dishes like trout or salmon. 

Price

Prices can range from a few euros to over €100 for the best absinthe varieties. Generally, higher-quality beverages are more expensive than lower-quality options. The type of herbs used and the degree of aging will also affect the price.
