Product Description

This type of spoon is one of the oldest of all absinthe spoon designs and commonly referred to as the "playing card spoon" because of card designs on the grill, in the middle of its handle. The grill is used to hold the sugar cube while preparing a traditional French or Swiss absinthe. Drinkers would turn the spoon upside down and lay it across the glass to hold their sugar cube. 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.
