    I've had it squirted into my mouth from a watergun, but I didn't have much, so I didn't trip out or anything. I do remember that is twas absolutely disgusting, though.

    Remember it crystallises in your stomach so when you wake up and have some water in the morning you will get drunk all over again.
    Surely you're thinking of Ouzo? :confused:

    I did a few shots once. Even after it, all I could taste was liquorice (aniseed, kay?) for the rest of the night. Not that I complained; I'm an alcoholic connoisseur...

    It's nice if served properly - that is, placing a sugar cube on an absinthe spoon (essentially just a slotted one), placing the spoon over a glass with some absinthe in it, and slowly pouring iced water over the sugar, until it has dissolved, dripping down into the glass.

    Just for an update, I had at least three and a half shots of absinthe and a lot more besides. Almost certainly still drunk this morning. Oh dear...

    Being drunk in the morning is not always a bad thing

    I don't really like it but me and a few mates do usually drink it before a night out.

    We've got quite a few bottles in our flat and the usual routine is a double shot right before going to get the bus/taxi into town.

    I have. Apparently it was 85%. Didn't taste that it was twice as strong as vodka. I reckon a few shots should get you drunk.

    It tastes like paint stripper mixed with mouthwash but its great because its easier to shot.

    Bought 70% green and 80% black back from slovakia. I would suggest that you only drink it the proper way which is diluting a shot of it with water poured over a sugar cube which you let settle various times until you fill your glass or have got the level you want (look it up)

    It is not meant to be drunk straight and i would much rather eat a gram of ketamine than drink anything over 40% straight as it would be better for my stomach.

    Your choice though.

    Done properly (spoon, sugar cube, match) and most important by someone else it was downable.

    Done by myself, like most things, was absolutely bloody disgusting.

    It hits you hard. Dont even try and do a bottle to yourself. Use this as a rule, every shot you do, imagine you just did three of normal strength vodka. Cause it feels like that
