Greetings absintheurs, what sugar cube do you use (if any) I am finding that my modern sugar cube is not suitable for the ritual :-( too hard I guess.. does not dissolve.

I know what you mean! Hard as a rock. Well it is designed for putting in hot beverages. I suppose that special absinthe sugar cubes do exist? In the old days when Nick was a lad they used to cut it from a sugar loaf :-)

The absinthe sugar cube does exist (i.e one made for the absinthe ritual) Please excuse me I am off for a ride on my penny farthing...

So apart from jolly japes, where does one find the elusive absinthe sugar cubes?

I have also found that when dripping the absinthe onto the sugar cubes it only partially dissolves. I also believe that the modern sugar cubes are only designed for putting into hot beverages like tea and coffee. As I really only can enjoy absinthe with sugar I am quite determined to find a proper cube. I do not like the idea of adding granulated sugar as the ritual is an essential part of the enjoyment :-) Does the absinthe honey one dissolve? They sure look cute!

Why are you dripping the absinthe onto the sugar please? Do you mean that you set it a light in the Bohemian way??
