Even Evan Rachel Wood ("The Life Before her Eyes") can’t handle her boyfriend Marilyn Manson’s new brand of absinthe, named "Mansinthe."
“For my birthday, I did one shot to try it, and that was it,” Wood said. “I was drunk immediately. Being who he is, Manson wanted to make it as strong as it could possibly be, so it’s got the highest amount of wormwood that you can have legally. One shot of it, and you’re out for the night. Three shots of it, you’re dead.”
Hmmm. Maybe this is what turned Evan’s blond hair black and made her look suspiciously like her MM predecessor, burlesque queen Diva Von Teese. Click here to see the scary side-by-sides!
Manson’s kickapoo goth joy juice is made in Switzerland and his self- portrait (as an old man, and perhaps without makeup) appears on the label.
Here’s what the official description says: "Mansinthe is a natural absinthe, distilled from vermouth, aniseed, fennel and other fine herbs. Naturally, pre-sweetening is avoided and artificial colourings are out of the question for reasons of quality." Naturally? Oh, like Manson is against artificial colors? Have they not seen the dude’s face?
Word is the wicked brew may soon be available in the U.S. Click here for background on the horrifying hooch and upcoming availability.
