Traditional Method for Serving Absinthe

At our bottle sale hours this weekend, several customers had questions about the proper way to serve absinthe. While absinthe is versatile enough to be used in a variety of ways, the classic method of ice water dilution is a great starting point.


Pour 1 ounce or more Toulouse Red in a rocks glass or wine glass. Fill a second glass or small pitcher with ice water. Slowly drip the chilled water into the absinthe, diluting in the range of 3:1 to 5:1, or to taste. Santé!
