The Absinthium, a project

Friday, August 31, 2012

This is a copy of my post to the Calgary Steampunk Assemblage discussion board back in May of 2012.
An interesting project that I am still going to pursue.
Watch for posts labelled Absinthium.

Following on from the wonderful thread about the hand cranked wine bottle opener and pourer, this thread is for discussion of what would be needed to do the same thing for preparing a "dose" of Absinthe.

The process of preparing Absinthe properly is described here:The Absinthe Ritual.

As you can see there is much more to this process than simply pouring a shot into a glass cool. Of course it is that very process which, in it's ritualistic form, enhances the experience. So rather than simply having this machine "whip up a glass", it needs to be a soothing and mellow process so as not to disrupt the ambiance.

Ideas and suggestions welcome!

Keep your sightglass full, your firebox trimmed and YOUR WATER ICED!
