Did you drink it the original way? Sugar cube and some water? Or just straight from the bottle?

I've tried it the original way (with the sugar cube), just out of curiosity, but didn't like it. I liked a little of it, un a flute, with champagne. It was sooo long ago, though...

PS: The Absinthe sold in Brazil doesn't have the ammount of hallucinogenic to make you crazy. It's only legal to sell the one that has teh approved ammount.
