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!
