Absinthe + Sacred Blue Lily?? -

Post by mistermike1 » Tue Sep 29, 2009 11:43 pm

SWIM wants to try making some Absinthe out of a essence kit. They know its not authentic, but they say WTHeck. SWIM will make it with a 750 ml bottle of 100Proof Vodka. Absinthe essence kit(strong), couple droplets of peppermint extract to tone down the anise(maybe), and some Sacred Blue Lily seed tincture. SWIM has never tried SBL, so was wondering if anything would cancel out anything. SWIM is still trying to figure the right amount of full droppers to add to the whole bottle? SBLS tincture is rated at 3-7 dropperfulls per 1 cup of liquid. Absinthe wanna be drink will be consumed by: 1-2oz of Absinthe to 4-6 oz of water.

SWIM has researched SBL and it sounds like a promising addition, and hopes to bring out more of the effects(if any) from the drink?

SWIM says to make the absinthe and then pour a shot and add some tincture to it, as a test. If it works, great. If not, you haven't lost much.
BTW, "real" absinthe is about 140 proof/70% ethanol, so it may not turn out perfect, but SWIM thinks you are on the right track and wished you luck.

They say thanx. SWIM realized that dosage recommendations(on SBL drops) is not welcomed, so they apologize. With the concern on low alcohol proof, SWIM ended up diluting half a bottle of 100proof vodka with half bottle of 151proof grain alcohol. Sounds better to them too. Added 14 drops of peppermint to the lovely green concoction. They laugh since they know it's such a artificial color! But It seemed to have toned down the scent of anise. Also hear its great to help soothe stomach aches. That'll help with the high octane juice!! They'll see as SWIM will wait to let set for the weekend to taste.

All they'll ask, and correct them if they're out of bounds- Is for someone to PM any references on SBL and whether it intensifies or decreases strength over time when added to alcohol. Meaning, will it at first be one strength and later weeks/months be another strength? Remember SWIM was planning on using a tincture form of SBL, so that might make a difference too??? SWIM will wait on adding till they get more references-

I don't think the seed tichture would do anything cause the actives are most prevalent in the stamens and flowers ... the best thing I have found for blue lotus is the 50:1 bars that look like xanax in different colors and use like three of them per dose .... alot of people on here will tell you that absinth doesn't work but I have had great success with the essence mixtures but not really any with the real absinth or the shit they sell here in america .... if it is good post a report on what you find .... but the blue lotus takes forever to come on so try taking one shot every hour or so ! cheers
