thoughts on drinking, life and mixing the two.
There is an absinthe documentary on Netflix! If you want to learn about absinthe this is a pretty decent documentary. The only criticism I have is that they do try a bit of sensationalism to make the spirit more interesting. The color of the louche is overly green in many shots and there are a few interviewees who make claims of magic and mysticism, but after the first fifteen minutes or so it gets better. The sordid but real history of absinthe is pretty cool without the need for any hokey sensationalism. I love absinthe, but the liquid is far more interesting in its lore than in its effects.
Here is the trailer.
