Over the weekend a friend of a friend introduced me to absinthe. Normally I'm a whiskey drinker, but having been a student, they were amazed that I'd never tried absinthe before.

Apparently you're meant to get totally wasted on the stuff quite quickly, but it seemed to have a slower effect on me. Perhaps this is because I seem to get drunk from sheer quantity of liquid opposed to the potency of alcohol?

Anyway, after a few glasses, it wasn't half bad. It turns out that if you want to buy absinthe, there is quite a variety of different tastes to try, much like whiskey.

So I could be hanging up my whiskey drinking boots for a bit as I explore the world of absinthe.

Good times!
