Add absinthe and one large cube of ice to an old-fashioned glass. Place an absinthe spoon across the top of the glass with the sugar on it, and pour drops of water onto the spoon. The water will drop through the holes in the absinthe spoon.

It's not an Absinthe Drip recipe, that is how you make Absinthe traditionally, although you would use spring water and a sugar cube. And wouldn't the free sugar just fall through the absinthe spoon anyways?
Yeah, he's a little redundant!

Yeah, he's offering nothing more than the traditional French-Suisse ritual, but at least he's got it more or less right. I've never heard of the ice cube, though. Cold water works great to me.
Ice water...

... is dripped over a rectangular sugar cube lying in a perforated absinthe spoon atop a a stemmed glass containing "La Fee Verte"; the frigid water causes the essential oils in the absinthe to come out of suspension somewhat, producing the jade-like cloudiness characteristic of the traditional preparation. A Votre Sante!

It's good but not like the Old New Orleans tradition.
