Absinthe is 110 proof and is nothing to take lightly. Sip slowly and carefully. Put your glass down between sips and after you've had half your drink, wait about 10 or 15 minutes before continuing. There seems to be a time-release effect with absinthe; it can really sneak up on you, especially if you like the taste of licorice.
