English Russia has a step by step guide to making your own bottle of “Green Goddess”. I’m pretty sure I know what I’ll be doing this weekend. ALIAB Absinthe tasting party anyone?

Stage One. Infusion.
Ingredients: Alcohol 80% and herbs (the most common bought in the chemist’s, in grams per 1 liter of alcohol):

Herbs:
Wormwood: 100 g
Fennel (fruit): 50 g
Anise: 50 g
Mint: 15 g
Melissa: 8 g
Chamomile: 3 g
Cumin: 10 g
Angelica: 10 g

It would be nice to add 5-10 g of hyssop, but it is difficult to find. The substance should be kept in a dark place at room temperature for 7-15 days. You can certainly speed up the process, infusing the substance for 24 hours at a temperature of 40 C, but this will worsen the result.

Being a man who likes a nice glass of aged whiskey, the only thing I would prefer to drink is absinthe. I’m not too sure how this particular hooch would play into that category, but i’ll try it out none the less.
