The print features Designer Designer’s illustration of the absinthe ritual alongside its recipe.
Absinthe was a widely popular alcoholic drink in late 19th- and early 20th-century France, favoured by artists and writers. Rumoured to have psychoactive properties, its association with bohemian culture led to the spirit being banned in Europe until the early ’90s.
Commonly referred to in historical literature as la fée verte (“the green fairy”), absinthe is traditionally diluted in pure ice-cold water during a ritual performed with an absinthe fountain.
