Absinthemonde hey everyone--
I met the owner of the Absinthemonde shop in Heidelberg, Germany last Fall--Peter, and his shop is beyond belief!! The photo below is but a small sample of the entire packed shop, not including antique glass fountains, glasses and accessories. You could just live there! He speaks great english and is a wealth of the serious and true A. knowledge, but the website is just a source for email and phone for now: absinthemonde.de/ He sent me back with 2 pages of cocktail recipes, an info. flyer (for the layperson) and some small posters that i am happy to share--can mail or fax. IF you contact him, please say hello from california susan--on the motorcycle.
He also makes his own out of a distillery in paris--one completely traditional and one alittle sweeter. they are so amazing... and waiting for me--gotta go.
__yours in green heaven...
