Absinthe Spoon Enamel Pin
Inspired by vintage Absinthe spoons, this silver enamel pin features a silver spoon with glittery green fairy wings - the effects of Absinthe is often referred to as seeing "The Green Fairy".
Slotted spoons are 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.
