Witches Brew

The magical effects of absinthe come from the wormwood used to make the drink (the thuione it contains is reportedly psychoactive) and now a new Vodka has been released which is cashing in on this effect.

Apparently Babicka Vodka’s 500 year old recipe was that of a Czech Witch and was used as a medicine in ancient times. "Babicka" is the Czech term for an extraordinary band of 16th Century peasant grandmothers with a mysterious reputation for witchcraft.

I tasted Babicka the other night its the smoothest vodka i've ever tasted, if you like your vodka get your hands on this one. i think its best served as a martini.
