I understand absinthe has been making a return, albeit with a "safer" recipe. The wormwood (Latin name, Artemisiaabsinthium) is now illegal, I believe. Which is good, since it's basically poison! Yet,we must always pursue our pleasures, especially (for some) those that provide a frisson of danger. So here's to absinthe, the "Green Fairy" who will lead you into the wormy woods, but not necessarily out again.
