Absinthe Spoon - Wormwood

Absinthe Spoon - Wormwood


Ornately designed with the curving silhouette of the wormwood plant as its grille, this exactingly reproduced absinthe spoon perfectly captures the decadent spirit of its age.

Specially designed spoons such as this one, were traditionally used in the preparation of absinthe. A traditional absinthe is prepared by pouring an ounce of absinthe into an absinthe glass, then placing the absinthe spoon on top of the glass and a sugar cube atop the spoon. Ice water is slowly dripped from a fountain or carafe onto the piece of sugar. The cold sugar water then drips from the spoon into the glass of absinthe releasing oils and perfuming the air with fennel, grand wormwood and anise. The combination also begins to turn milky white in color, as the water mixes with the anise.

Stainless steel.  6 1/2" long x 1 1/2" wide
