"I'll mostly be partying with the green fairy hehe"
Oi!! Oh wait, you didn't mean me... ;)
I meant absinthe, you mong!!
Though henceforth thou shalt be known across the land as the Green Fairy, if you so wish;)
Oh my god! They got Green Fairy finally down here. Kewl, maybe its worth my while to go out to the same venue. Tasted this alcho-pop absinthe nearly two years ago in Leicester at a rock club and have missed its taste since then. *bounces*
You know, I just made a half-arsed makes-the-day-go-by-a-bit-faster gags about The Green Fairy being some sort of drink. Lo and behold, you say it is one. Either I'm totally out of touch with these things, or this is a total coinsidence - I suspect the former.
Oh yes...this Saturday, Black Catz nite, Whispers, above the Good Companions...
See you there??
You'll have to show me how to drink it lol!!
verrrrrry carefully and for the love of all that's Dark, DON'T MIX IT
traditionally, though, poored through a sugar cube onto crushed ice... and then sipped.
not, as my colleague's ex-bf tried it, drunk as shots mixed with red and blue aftershock. definite way to get yourself killed.
The Green Fairy, I assume, is a cocktail designed with fast-track feel-goodness in mind.
It's the absinthe fairy...clue: why was Kylie green in 'Moulin Rouge'...what were they drinking??
I've not seen that.
Actually my brain is failing,
Green fairies!! Have fun I wouldn't mind one of my very own.
Absinthe contains an active constituent 'thujon' (not sure about the spelling) that is quite neurotoxic. Don't do it.
the neurotoxins in proper Absinthe are very fun and good..and hard to come by..they MIGHT have an Absinthe derivative like they do here in the pacific northwest region of the USA..
The Gemini-drinking thing is very true for me. I always end up fighting with people who don't realise I'm totally wankered.
Absinth is lush, I've got a bottle of fairly weak [for Absinth] czeck stuff. I prefere it straight, but it can also be used in various cocktails.
The film 'From Hell' has a green tinge whenever the Johnny Depp character has a 'vision' (in other words, an Absinth-induced hallucination hehehehe). Great stuff. Always check the percentage, as it can range from 50-odd% to 70-odd% - good times :)
I once had a mouthful of something called 'Stroh' which was brewed from straw and was 80%...I think it came from Poland or somewhere...
Jesus was that strong!!!

That sounds utterly foul! Did it taste of horses? :P
Absinthe makes the heart grow fonder!
I shall probably be repeating that drunkenly all Saturday night now lolol!!!
