Item:112577774539LEAF ABSINTHE SPOON and 10 SUGAR CUBES - with FREE SHIPPING Leaf Absinthe Spoon This spoon is used in the preparation of a traditional French or Swiss absinthe. A traditional absinthe is prepared by pouring an ounce of absinthe into an absinthe glass, then placing the absinthe spoon on top of the glass and a sugar cube atop the spoon. Ice water is slowly dripped from a fountain, carafe or balancier onto the piece of sugar. The cold sugar water then drips from the spoon into the glass of absinthe releasing oils and perfuming the air with fennel, grand wormwood and anise. The combination also begins to turn milky white in color, as the water mixes with the anise. Measures 6.4"/163mm long.Stainless steel.Will not tarnish. Dishwasher safe.Imported.Made by Bonnecaze.Sugar Because of the high proof of alcohol, sugar will not dissolve in absinthe without first being dissolved with water. It is for this reason that water is slowly dripped onto a sugar cube which then enables the sugar water to mix more easily with the absinthe. Besides the French being known for having a big sweet tooth, the sugar is also used to cut the bitterness of absinthe. It was highly frowned upon to drink absinthe without sugar during the pre-ban era. These sugar tablets are the perfect size for sweetening your absinthe.Packets include two (2) individually wrapped sugar cubes.Purchase includes 10 cubes (5 packets).Packets measure 1.25" long x 5/8" wide x 3/8" high.Condition:New, Absinthe Spoon:Absinthe Spoon
