Traditional Absinthe Preparation
- Cold water
- Sugar cube (if desired)
Pour 1.5 oz. of absinthe into an absinthe glass, or whatever glass you have on hand. Drip 6 oz. of cold water into the glass. You can use an absinthe fountain (fancy), brouillier (look it up), or pitcher of cold water (easy). If you want to add a bit of sweetness, drip the water through a sugar cube on an absinthe spoon placed across the lip of the glass.
