Traditional Absinthe Spoon Holder
by Bonnecaze Absinthe & Home are a great addition to your bar.
Spoon holders (also called tronc de comptoirs in France) were typically found on bistro and bar counter tops, used to hold spoons awaiting "the ritual." The absinthe ritual begins by pouring an amount of absinthe into an absinthe glass, then placing an absinthe spoon on top of the glass and a sugar cube atop the spoon. Ice water is slowly dripped from a fountain, carafe or balancier onto the piece of sugar. The cold sugar water then drips from the spoon into the glass of absinthe releasing oils and perfuming the air with fennel, grand wormwood and anise. The combination also begins to turn milky white in color, as the water mixes with the anise. Besides being practical, it's a great way to display your spoons.
