Description
 
This spoon was a popular and commonly found spoon in bistros and bars during the pre-ban era. The spoon's grille contains 8 cross cut outs and 18 small circles.

This spoon is used in the preparation of a traditional French or Swiss absinthe. A traditional absinthe is prepared by pouring an ounce of absinthe into an absinthe glass, then placing the absinthe spoon on top of the glass and a sugar cube atop the spoon. Ice water is slowly dripped from a fountain, carafe or balancier onto the piece of sugar. The cold sugar water then drips from the spoon into the glass of absinthe releasing oils and perfuming the air with fennel, grand wormwood and anise. The combination also begins to turn milky white in color, as the water mixes with the anise.

RETAILERS: Each order will include a brief history of absinthe and its misconceptions. This information is intended to help your staff become more knowledgeable about absinthe to better inform your customers.
