Niagara, artist and singer for Destroy All Monsters & Dark Carnival reveals her favorite summer drink
Favorite Summer Drink: Absinthe
Recipe: Absinthe with an Absinthe chaser
Music Accompaniment: “Hmmm something horribly Baroque like Syd Barrett. If it’s not Baroque…fix it.”
WIKI: “Absinthe has often been portrayed as a dangerously addictive psychoactive drug and hallucinogen. The chemical compound thujone, although present in the spirit in only trace amounts, was blamed for its alleged harmful effects. By 1915, absinthe had been banned in the United States and in much of Europe, including France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland and Austria-Hungary. Although absinthe was vilified, it has not been demonstrated to be any more dangerous than ordinary spirits. Recent studies have shown that absinthe’s psychoactive properties (apart from that of the alcohol) have been exaggerated.” more here
