At the end of the 18th century, a French doctor, Pierre Ordinaire, distilled wormwood & other herbs in an alcoholic base as a remedy for his patients. The drink, Absinthe, was his invention.

The traditional French preparation involves placing a sugar cube on top of a specially designed slotted spoon, and placing the spoon on a glass filled with a measure of absinthe. Iced water is poured or dripped over the sugar cube to slowly and evenly distribute the water into the absinthe. The final preparation contains 1 part absinthe and 3-5 parts water.
