This is the uncut version (no facet cuts) of the single server glass Verse-Eau (“water pourer” in French). It’s purpose is to slowly add water to absinthe. A dose of absinthe is first poured into the glass and the Verse-Eau is placed on top of the glass. Ice is then placed inside the glass bowl and water is slowly poured over the ice from a carafe or pitcher. The ice water will begin to stream through a small hole located at the bottom of the dripper and into the absinthe below. It is not suggested to completely fill the Verse-Eau with water. The preferred way is to pour a small amount of water on small increments. The reason being, the absinthe may want to be tasted for your liking, before too much water is added. Also, if too much water is added, it could quickly overfill the glass.
To use sugar, simply place a cube (or stacked cubes) over the hole before the ice and water is added.
