Absinthe makes a modern comeback in the Fairy Bomb.
That’s right: the prayers of every pretentious, artsy, clove-smoking art student and club kid have been answered. Containing 8% alcohol, guarana, and thujone – the “psychoactive” ingredient in absinthe some misinformed consumers believe makes you hallucinate – Fairy Bombs seem an almost irresponsible drink, similar to Sparks only with added unhealthiness. Hi IQ Liquor, (ironic name, eh?), says: “Drinking Green Fairy and energy drink has become popularly known as ‘The Fairy Bomb’ in bars and clubs, so it seems only right that we make it available ready for you to drink in a can.”
Yes, yes, it’s “only right”.
I searched online and couldn’t find anywhere to buy it. (Yeah, I wanna try it). The company site leads to some wholesale distributor. Judging by the fact that it merely says “contains thujone”, on every product description I came across, I’d say it’s probably low enough levels it wouldn’t be past the legal 10mg in the States.
