ng-ka-py and wormwood
All of this chat about Absinthe and wormwood.
I was re-reading "East of Eden" and Steinbeck mentions a drink called ng-ka-py made with wormwood that tastes like rotton apples, but "good rotton apples".
Is there such a drink? A search on goggle didn't turn up much. There is some wine with that name and a licorace flavored liquor. Nothing that tastes like good rotton apples with wormwood other than references to Steinbeck.
Are there other drinks made with wormwood?
