Absinthe is a highly alcoholic anise-flavoured spirit derived from the medicinal plant Artemisia absinthium, also called wormwood. It is sometimes know as "the green fairy" due to its green colouring (but it can also be clear). Absinthe is usually drunk mixed 3 parts to 5 with ice cold water and, due to the high concentration of oils and alcohol, the resulting mixture goes cloudy - this is know as "louching". Both the Pernod and Pontarlier are typical of the modern French-styles of absinthe. Wikipedia has a very good section on the history of Absinthe.
