BBC: Absinthe: How the Green Fairy became literature’s drink

Recommended Posts

While all the talk of hallucinations and murders is more prominent than most here would prefer... and the image of Absente being front and center... a lot of the article isn't so bad. I've seen far worse.

 

They even make happy reference to "absinthe dilution apps for your smartphone"... ahem.

"In todays literary circles, absinthe is more an amusement than a muse showing up as a hipster cocktail at themed book-launch parties"

 

Hipsters now drink absinthe?!? I guess pulque and PBR are passé to them now! :laugh:
