Pour an ounce or two of absinthe into a tall, heavy, thick-stemmed glass, like a parfait glass.
Place an absinthe spoon -- a flat, metal, slotted spoon -- across the rim of the glass.
Put a sugar cube on the slots of the spoon.
Slowly drip three to six ounces of cold spring water over the sugar cube until the sugar is dissolved. The absinthe will turn from transparent green to a cloudy green or yellow.
Some people dip the sugar cube in absinthe and set the cube on fire before dousing it with ice water.
Stir with the slotted spoon and enjoy.
