Absinthe makes the heart...

The Absinthe Buyer's Guide will tell you anything you could possibly want to know about absinthe.

I've only tried it once; two years ago at Burning Man there was this awesome absinthe bar, where you could step up and get a drink of what was quite possibly the worst-tasting liquid imaginable. I decided that as much as the practice of drinking absinthe appeals to me, that meticulous ritual with slotted spoon and sugar cubes, there was no way in hell I was ever going to develop a taste for it.
