I'm traveling to Paris, Madrid and Barcelona in a couple of weeks. Does anyone one know in these three cities where I might be able to purchase a bottle of absinthe? Is it available at the supermarket? And also...what would the cost be...thanks!
Even last year I saw Absinthe at the local licquor store. It is now Jan 2009 and Absinthe is now legal in the States.
It is made with the herb wormwood which is medicinal and a digestive in small quantities but can cause all kinds of problems if you drink too much. Check Mrs. Grieve herbal for info on wormwood properties: http://www.botanical.com/botanical/mg...
