description

Spoon made of silver-plated, tin-plated or nickel-plated metal - approx. 15 to 18 cm long - with holes used to sweeten absinthe. In the spoon - which is placed horizontally on a glass of absinthe - some sugar is placed and sprinkled with water. Another model is a spoon without holes, the handle of which is interrupted by a surface with holes. After the absinthe has been sugared, you can stir it with a spoon. [MOT]
