Absinthe Spoon - Belle Epoque Stained Glass
This spoon is used in the preparation of a traditional French or Swiss 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, carafe, or balancier 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.
This spoon is a replica of an authentic antique pattern. This design reminiscent of a stained glass window and is one of our most popular and ornate styles. This spoon also features a pair of unique notches which serve to hold the spoon firmly on the glass.
