    More Information:
    We like to keep our contributors on their toes here in Facts, and what better way to do that than subjecting them to gloriously high alcohol percentages of Absinthe? From a measly 68%, all the way up to almost 90%, watch in awe as we (well...they) experience the unique flavour that is absinthe. (Honestly, we're just glad they're still with us.)

                    El mejor truco para apagar ese fuego: tomar un chupito de cerveza.
                    Yo lo tomaba con 16 años jajaja
                    El camarero siempre me preparaba un chupito de cerveza aparte por si no aguantaba.

                                Absinthe, for when you need to get drunk fast, and don't care how you get there.

                                      What kind of monster make these poor people drink absinthe straight. The very first one where it's a little bit of absinthe a crap ton of water dripped over sugar cube is the proper preparation.

                                      This video should be titled how to make sure an Irish person never drinks absinthe again.

                                      Another really good preparation for absences as a wash in the glass with like an eighth of an ounce before you put your drink in it. But the glass is so cold that the absinthe freezes to the surface.
                                      At which point it slowly pollutes into whatever drink you're having and makes it better. This entire video is a crime against good absinthe everywhere. Also the cliche one in a skull bottle is rotgut even by absent standards
