I have a friend going to London and a few of the major cities in Italy. Is there any chance of her easily finding me some Absinthe to bring back to the US? I don't want to make her go out of her way, but thought it would be a very interesting thing to have. She keeps asking what I want, and coffee/wine seems so boring.
If the answer is yes, what are the best brands and approximate cost for your average bottle? What is an average bottle, 750ml?
