All I know is that it’s green and it makes you see stuff. What is absinthe??

Hold your horses, homeboy! Let Tipsy Bartender explain something to you. Absinthe is an anise-flavored spirit made from both medicinal and culinary herbs. Typical herbs that manufacturers use to sexify absinthe include: wormwood, green anise, and sweet fennel. Unfortunately, you don’t actually hallucinate. That was made-up prohibition propaganda to make it seem dangerous. But you can’t keep artists down. Because of its reputation, absinthe attracted many artists and writers part of the bohemian movement. Formerly known as The Absinthe Room, the Old Absinthe House in New Orleans is famous for the popularity of absinthe cocktails. Artists and writers like Mark Twain, Oscar Wilde, and Frank Sinatra would frequent The Absinthe Room.

 

No way! I never knew those old dead guys partied.

You have no idea how hard some of these dudes partied. This might give you an idea though. Other notable absinthe drinkers include: Edgar Allan Poe, Ernest Hemingway, Pablo Picasso, and Vincent van Gogh. Now that’s a party.
