    We like to keep our contributors on their toes here in Facts, and what better way to do that than subjecting them to gloriously high alcohol percentages of Absinthe? From a measly 68%, all the way up to almost 90%, watch in awe as we (well...they) experience the unique flavour that is absinthe. (Honestly, we're just glad they're still with us.)

    What's funny is that I'll probably never have alchohol in my life, but I still am addicted to cocktail making videos

    I have had real true absinthe only once, it was the only time i ever blacked out. I had 4 big shots with my bestfriend at a house party in about 10 minutes, and the last thing i remember is swallowing the 4th shot and thinking to myself "this stuff ain't thay strong) and then bam, blackness. 2 hours later i came to literally carrying my best friend like a baby (bare in mind, he was roughly 7 inches taller than me and about 40lbs heavier than me) while full on sprinting down a back road with both of us screaming "to the plunder" at the top of our lungs while i was missing a shoe. To this day neither of us know what led us to that point or what the hell happend in those 2 hours, all we know is about 5 minutes after we drank it me and him started laughing our asses off at seemingly nothing and then like we were telepathically communicating or some shit, we jumped up at the same time and both ran off from the party without saying a word to anyone. Only the next day when we talked to our friends who were there did we find out that last part. But no charges were pressed against us while we were blacked out so imma chalk that up as a win.

    You're supposed to set 🔥 to the sugar before you stir it in. The absinthe turns blue. I drank black absinthe neat last time I had it. It's been a few years though.
