Here I am trying absinth, a popular liquor in the Czech Republic. Bohemian style absinth is supposed to be consumed in a particular way: first, you dip a teaspoon of sugar into the absinthe, then light it to caramelize the sugar. Once the sugar is melted, you stir it into the absinth. Sadly, the sweetness of the sugar does not make the drink taste any better!

I recognise that place, though I think when we were there, there was a medieval festival on; everyone dressed up and all the trimmings. Given the architecture it felt quite authentic!
