Absinthe spoons are used to hold a sugar cube over the mouth of a glass. Absinthe is poured into the glass and cold water is slowly poured over the sugar cube. As the sugar melts it infuses the drink with it's sweetness balancing out some of the bitterness from the herbs in the drink.

These Spoons are part of the Père François collection at l'absintherie du Père François in Motiers, Switzerland. The Père François collection is one of the largest assemblages of absinthe ephemera in the world.
