banned US drink: ABSINTHE!
But, Absinthe lovers in the US, it’s time to rejoice! The notorious drink that has been banned in America since 1912 (holy sh*t! that’s nearly a 100 years already!), has finally been allowed back to the market! Woohoo! According to “rumors”, the drink has been banned because it causes seizures, blindness and even insanity. It is 60% alcohol by volume so you can just imagine it’s potency! The recommended number of Absinthe shots? TWO! That’s how potent it is.. But if you’re a thrill seeker then go ahead and try this one. Just don’t say I didn’t warn you! LOL! The video below shows a bit on how Absinthe is made, and how it is served in the past century. Go watch!
