What Hollywood taught me about drinking absinthe:
- Moulin Rouge: A green, glittery fairy will dance and fly around singing songs from the Sound of Music.
- Eurotrip: You will hallucinate and hang out with an overweight fairyman.
What real life experience taught me from drinking absinthe:
- Hollywood lies...
There are two other things I learned after my night at the absinthe bar.
The first is do not, I repeat DO NOT, let a fiery sugar cube burn your throat. I hear it hurts like hell. Watching Derek struggle to live as the sugar cube seared off the inside of his esophagus, I concluded that I never want to experience that fiery, burning, sugary hell.
