Absinthe Makes The Heart Grow Fonder: Lucid For Valentines!

Lucid Absinthe Bottle

Description: We suggest ABSINTHE to heat things up: mysterious, sexy, delicious... the kick-starter accompaniment for a long conversation followed by an even longer kiss. Or more. Lucid Absinthe is true absinthe re-legalized in the U.S. after a 95-year ban. Master Distiller Ted Breaux – who at the time was an environmental chemist – became intrigued by “pre-ban” absinthe when he inherited a bottle from the 1800s. He tasted it, wondered if it really was hallucinogenic, so ran it through the mass spectrometer at work. Making a long story short, he scientifically proved that absinthe is not a dangerous hallucinogen, and that the law against it was baseless. With his business partner, they took on the Federal Government, got the 95-year ban overturned, and now Americans can once enjoy this storied spirit. Lucid is made completely by hand with whole European herbs, containing Grande Wormwood – without any artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives – and is true to absinthe’s past, both in the bottle and “in spirit,” as a elixir to sip and enjoy while having a great conversation. Absinthe is traditionally enjoyed be filling a glass with one ounce, then dripping in ice cold water over a sugar cube balanced on a slotted spoon. At the Lucid store on-line, you can go full French and purchase absinthe glasses, spoons, a balancier, or even a fountain (http://www.brandpointmarketing.com/lucid/cat.asp?cat=Promotional+Items). Here is a video of the balancier in use: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zbsuxi8U3k8
