    I might be partaking of the green fairy for the first time tonight and I was wondering how much of it I should drink so as not to get completely ****ed and end up sleeping in a rain-soaked gutter. Only I've got stuff to do tomorrow.

      Not much. Its 70% or around that, so drink half of what you would if you were drinking normal strength spirits ala vodka etc..
      Just my suggestion.

      Not much? It really isn't anything special which you seem to think it will be? Just really strong alcohol.

      Not being funny, but I had one shot of the stuff, five minutes later it hit me like a ton of bricks, sure I had been drinking a few pints before it, but boy it does hit you VERY hard indeed

        I've had it before, it's deadly. Only one shot is advisable and I'd have it way before I start drinking other drinks.

        Are you talking about straight absinthe or the 'traditional' way of drinking it?

        Yeah, I've tried it and it's actually quite fun - if you do it right.

        80% strength absinthe knocked my sideways the first time I tried it - and that was a shot.

        I reckon stick to doing one shot, because that stuff does hit you pretty damn hard.

        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.
