5th of Everclear (Vodka will do if it is over 70% alcohol)

1/4 ounce of dried, crumbled wormwood (available at most occult-ish places)

Add both these together and shake once daily for 3 days. Store in a cool and DARK place.

On the 3rd day strain the wormwood from the alcohol. Add the following things (available at most markets in the spice section):

Let all this sit in the strained alcohol for 1 week, shake everday. Store in dark place because the sun will evaporate the alcohol.

After the week is over make 1 1/2 cups sugar syrup using sugar and water. (a semi-thick mix)

Add to alcohol and you have Absinthe
