Absinthe- the green fairy
Everybody has heard about this drink - the absinthe. There are many myths and legends that entwine around absinthe and they all add to the overall picture of this drink. The absinthe was first made in Switzerland, but soon after France could establish as the absinthe country No. 1. There, a hype arose about this drink and between 5 pm and 7 pm a "green hour" was held, when the most different people met in the street cafes and enjoyed a bit of absinthe together. There were different dinking rituals and even artists were inspired and encouraged to dazzling creations by absinthe. In the course of time, consumption of absinthe had been overdone in many places and therefore the law tried to forbid it, as more and more critical public voices could be heard. That led to a prohibition, which denied production and sales in large parts of Europe and in the USA to a whole generation. This encouraged the absinth's legend and in the underground the absinthe culture could develop.
In the 90s the prohibition was taken back in most countries and the absinthe had been taken back into the society immediately.
