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.

I noticed the mention: congratulations! It will be interesting to know if your downloads shoot up now.

BBC is trying to tell me that "Absente" is actually a real absinthe. That's cute.

"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:

Laissez le bon temps rouler!
L' Huere Verte! C'est le bon temps!
Absinthe! Comme c'est la douceur de vivre!
