Spoons

Absinthe Spoons were, and are, an integral part of preparing a traditional French/Swiss absinthe (cold water drip method). The  come in a wide variety of designs and sizes.

The spoon is placed across the rim of a glass containing a dose of absinthe and is used to hold the sugar cube(s) to sweeten an absinthe. Cold water is slowly poured over the sugar, allowing the sugar to dissolve and fall into the glass as sugar water.
