Absinthe has had its share of eerie earlier beginnings. In the early 1900’s, Jean Lanfray was convicted of murdering his wife and children while under the influence of liquor. Though he had consumed an excessive amount of wine, cognac and brandied coffees, it was the two glasses of Absinthe that created public outcry against this heinous crime leading to a petition to ban Absinthe in Switzerland. This is due cause to always remember to consume Absinthe and all spirits sensibly.

    Hi , I am new to this page but not to drinks. I am not a bartender but like to dable with recipes. My question, when you put the word “measure” in your recipes, is that the nice way of saying 1 shot?

    I use measure in reference to 1 ounce usually. However, using the word measure allows the user freedom to choose the measuring vessel (such as a shot glass) to measure all the ingredients in a recipe. A shot glass could be 1.25 ounces, 1.5 ounces or more rather than simply 1 ounce.
