This long absinthe spoon is useful for stirring in tall glasses. This is a replica of an ancient model. Since real absinthe has no additional sugar in it, spoons are used to hold a sugar cube above the glass while a fountain drips water on it in order to sweeten and dilute the alcohol. Once sweetened and mixed to your taste, use the spoon to stir the "purée" (old french slang for an absinthe diluted with cold water.) Simply put the sugar cube on the ''4 hearts'' in the middle of the handle.
