I would appreciate any info on this. I buy it and bring it back from Portugal everytime I'm there. Customs never give me problems and they have opened my bags several times and seen it.

I've never bought it in Mexico, but I did see it. This particular place had the fake stuff. I"m sure you can find the good stuff if you look tho. You can also order it online.

Absinthe is a terrible tasting liquor. You pour it over sugar to kill the taste. It' VERY potent and not for everyone.

I saw two different types of absinthe in liquor stores in Cancun. There was a green bottle that was lower proof and -- at fewer places -- a brown or tan bottle that was higher proof and much more $$$ (that would have been wormwood, if either would). I wondered if customs would let it go, so I did not buy any. But have always wanted to try.

Absinthe (Alcohol)

The importation of Absinthe and any other liquors or liqueurs that contain Artemisia absinthium is prohibited.

This is from the US Customs website...now whether they will take it from you is another question..
