Christmas absinthe! I think that the "masters" of novelty brands i.e Mansinthe, Twin Tec Bikers Medicine and all that jazz have actually brought out a brand called Christmas Absinthe! It is perhaps distilled using a recipe known only to Santa and his elves, and uses a secret ingredient.

Seriously, I would say that it depends on what you like taste wise...do you like anise for example (aniseed)?

don't mind anise though it shouldn't overwhelm the flavor. thanx nick

the flavour of what, wormwood? wormwood is a bitter herb for sure and was prob only used in the 1st place because of the medical effect. fact: if y'all want a nice herby booze then there are better tasting members of Ma Nature's family.

I always baste my Xmas turkey in absinthe. It usually catches fire in the oven and then I am free to order a KFC family bucket (with extra fries) for our festive treat. For dessert it has to be the McFlurry (another gastronomic delight from America) I wish it could be Christmas everyday...

"I always baste my Xmas turkey in absinthe"

Me too. I then set it on fire and throw it out in the yard, after that I lock myself in a cupboard -with remaining absinthe and a beef jerky - and get s*#t faced. Everyone has there own Christmas "tradition" What is yours?

PS...do not disrespect my Christmas rituals, as it is part of my religion.

I encase myself in cling film and on Christmas Eve I turn off the power in my building ( I am a landlord) This ensures that my tenants remember the true meaning of Christmas without any TV or other electronic distractions. I distribute candles, horse hair blankets, and "boil in the bag" turkey dinners.

Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without.......absinthe. Anyone ever tried an absinthe and calvados cocktail?

Schmutzli or Père Fouettard (for the German speaking & French speaking sections of Switzerland) is the Swiss henchman of Santa. He beats up naughty people - a charming olde world tradition from the land of the Cuckoo Clock, nest pas?
