Surfer on Absinthe via TipsyBartender

I've heard of a surfer on acid, but this definitely takes it up a few notches. Absinthe has been around since B.C. It was mainly used for medicinal uses and it was served with honey to make it bearable for children to digest. Some people say that original meaning is undrinkable, and other people say it may mean something complex. The interesting thing about it is that it became a kind of popular form of alcoholic consumption in France. However, it was still wine territory as it is today.

In the 1900s, there was an unofficial ban on the liquor as many people deemed it to make people go loony and it provoked things such as epilepsy and tuberculosis. However, by 1990, it was reinstated as there was no formal ban. This is a special kind of alcohol that has a very plant/licorice based taste to it. It's very potent with an ABV from around 45-97%. So, it's no surprise that some people just really don't drink it. However, this surfer on absinthe seems to have a potent yet very smooth kick. Here's the recipe:

1 part Lucid Absinthe
1 part Coconut Rum
1 part Pineapple Juice
