Lucid is the real stuff, Absente is not. Pernod brand is supposed to be coming back out with their original 1800's recipe. Iowa used to carry all three...but I haven't seen Pernod for a year or two. For me, Lucid is my brand of choice...it has no artificial colors or flavors as the other two brands. It also has a large amount of Grand Wormwood in it as well. I louche 1&1/2 oz of absinthe with 3 oz of spring water. Some people use a sugar cube, but I found it to be sweet enough without the sugar.

Of course, this was an unnecessarily long answer to your question, when all I had to say was yes. Smile

I drank Lucid-too much. I wasn't very Lucid. In fact I believe I got myself sick but I can't really remember much.
5 louches is the maximum amount I drink. Any more and I'm useless the next day...although, after 4 glasses on the 2nd of November I ran a 5k in 24:26.60. I placed 3rd in the 40-49 year old age group. Hmmmmm......

I'm taking a ride with my best friend...I hope he never lets me down again.

A new taste:

I received a bottle of The Macallan "Director's Edition" as a gift and tried a wee dram last night. Lovely stuff!
