Great picture Lizzie. Nice spoon.
The "Green Fairy" is what this was called during the Belle Epoque. It was a favorite of the artsy class while slumming on the Left Bank and a an absolutely devastating drink to the working class. Essentially, I've seen absinthe likened to crack. Picasso did a sculpture in the early 20th century and Degas did some devastating paintings of absinthe drinkers. Some of Van Gogh's issues could be linked to absinthe addiction and Toulouse Lautrec allegedly had a cane in which he could store absinthe to drink on at any time. The sugar spoon is iconic.
Im liking what I see! One the most beautiful things about this drink are the accessories and the tradition that goes with it. Nice!
