Do your friends make fun on you for sipping absinthe through a straw? ( I'll make fun of you if they don't :harhar: )

Well, to your defense, you can argue that it was sometimes done back in the days.

From the color of the drink, and it looks like sugar cubes to the left of the carafe, and it looks like a spoon at the base of the lady's glass-- It is probably absinthe she is drinking.

Once louched, there no offense in a lady sipping her absinthe through a straw. What is she supposed to do, guzzle it? You cad. ;)

Yes, that would better explain the color in the glass.
