Absinthe: Sucks or Rules? – Masters of None

Masters Of None

Absinthe- A mysterious liquid that has a legendary history. Some of the most creative minds in history swore by this beverage and some can even blame it for their ultimate mental demise. Vincent Van Gogh, Oscar Wilde, Edgar Allen Poe, and Ernest Hemingway are just a few of the notable people who imbibed in the green liquid exclusively. At this point we figured – why not us? We can’t get any less creative. On this week’s show, we try and rate absinthe with our patented “Sucks or Rules” debate.

Since absinthe has been legal in America, we have flooded the absinthe market with more absinthe mixed drinks than you can shake a stick at. If you are so inclined to take a walk to the emerald city and enjoy what some people call “The Green Devil,” here are a few ways you can enjoy it.
