Great news for absinthe lovers - Absinthe is being distilled officially again in its Val-de-Travers birthplace, in the Jura region of Switzerland, where it originated. This recipe was found on the Absente website, and posted for ZWT. If you love licorice, you'll enjoy absinthe! (The size of the baking dish is my best guess...)
