Absinthe became popular during the turn of the 20th century among European artists and writers.
It has an opaque green color and a high alcohol content, anywhere between 55 and 75 percent.
Traditionally it is made of anise, fennel and wormwood, a plant that contains the neurotoxin thujone. That’s why many people think absinthe is hallucinogenic.
Scientists say that a person drinking absinthe would die from alcohol poisoning long before being affected by the thujone. However, with moderation, absinthe is totally safe.
