The mystery around this drink has occurred for Artemisia absinthium containing an alkaloid called thujone. Thujone used to be attributed a hallucinogenic delirium which had a creative impact on such world artists as Rimbaudt, Van Gogh, Gaugain and others. Scientific researches, however, have proved that the artists’ depressions were not caused by thujone but by their unbridled alcoholism. Absinth can be also used in famous cocktails such as Long Island Iced tea, Absinth Frappé, Sun Rice and others. There is also a traditional ritual of drinking absinth popular with intellectuals and artists’ poetic souls..
