Sippin' Absinthe through a straw in 1904

Recommended Posts

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.

The modern drinking straw became popular about 1890
