Absinthe Large Spoon Leaf

Sale price$12.00

This beautiful Leaf Absinthe Spoon is a reproduction of an antique considered to be very rare and quite elusive by collectors. The slight curvature of the grille creates a bit of a funnel, which helps to focus the sugar water to the center spine of the spoon as it falls into the glass of absinthe. The attractive design makes it one of our most popular.

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.

Measures 6.5" (16.5 cm) in length.
