Food in Russia: what's hot in a cold country

Russian absinthe for kids

You know, here in Russia kids are taught to drink from very young age, ’cause why not? Here is how Russian kids’ absinthe looks like:


Nah, just kidding.

However, it is true that this green drink is non-alcoholic and herb-flavoured. But it’s not anise (which is in Absinthe), it’s tarragon which still makes a good drink. This soda is called Tarkhun in Russian (tarkhun is just another name for tarragon).

Oh, and this is also true that we have a kids champagne (non-alcoholic, of course) which is popular around New Year (champagne is must on Russian New Year table).
