“After the first glass of absinthe you see things as you wish they were. After the second you see them as they are not. Finally you see things as they really are, and that is the most horrible thing in the world. I mean disassociated.” -Oscar Wilde
It sounds like we should probably heed the advice of Oscar Wilde and try to avoid absinthe.. or at least avoid it the third time because that is when it doesn’t sound so great. Anybody that managed to see From Hell with Johnny Depp saw him drinking absinthe and for those that did their research found out Johnny Depp seemed to fully support absinthe usage as well. Gadgets 4 Guys is not encouraging this drink or drug (we will let you decide) but it is a very interesting kit that is now available for purchase. Absinthes.com claims to be Europe’s largest absinthe vendor and from the nice little packages they have created for people to choose from, they might just be right.
Who wants to be the next Marilyn Manson? Why didn’t anybody raise their hands? You aren’t ready to wear full synthetic suits and create music they interrogate terrorists to anyways. If you want to try Marilyn Manson’s own absinthe drink, you are able to via this website (his is called Mansinthe in case you were wanting that particular one). These absinthe kits will allow you to mix and match the different types of drinks and plug it into different sized kits (the one we featured here is a 3 bottle kit). The kit also makes sure to allow you to drink absinthe the old school way and gives a complimentary spoon along with a absinthe ritual card. That way when you have your friends over you won’t look like a complete idiot when trying to drink absinthe the old school and correct way. Now all you will have to do is drink and see if you see the Green Fairy or the Green Devil (that last nickname has insured we won’t touch this stuff but good luck if you do!).
