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 centre spine of the spoon as it falls into the glass of absinthe. The attractive design makes it one of our most popular.
Absinthe is best enjoyed diluted with cold water and sweetened ever so slightly. This absinthe spoon, resting atop an absinthe glass, will hold a sugar cube. 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 colour, as the water mixes with the anise.
