The cork cap of the bottle of my Absinthe broke away the last time i tried to use it. I removed it from the bottle with a cork screw and removed the fragments. However a month or so later i've noticed it still has a few smaller fragments in it that have been floating around this whole time. Is it safe to drink?

The cork fragment should not hurt you.

I can't think of any reason why it would be unsafe. The cork will have been in contact with the absinthe since it was bottled.

Just strain out the cork.

Well, no alcoholic beverage is "safe," but cork isn't toxic. Just strain it out. Wine oftend gets bits of cork floating around in it after you open the bottle and nobody dies from that. They die from the alcohol.

You can filter it through fine sterile fabric.

It's fine. You can prevent further annoyance with a bottle-sized vessel, a funnel, and a coffee filter.

Absinthe is potent enough on its own, I dont think the cork bits will harm you if you can drink Absinthe!

Yes. Cork is very soft wood so no problem. The alcohol would kill any germs.

That would be the same cork that was in contact with the drink ever since it was bottled. - Download Hi-Res Songs
