There is something so intriguing about Absinthe. The Green Fairy, The Green Muse, The Green Goddess, and la Fee Verte... all nicknames by which the green elixir is called. POSH Chicago now carries all of the necessary absinthe accoutrement: spoon, glass and guide book. I myself have never sipped the sinful drink and have heard it tastes awful - like burning licorice. For now, I will just admire the history and world of Absinthe from afar... so beautifully dark and dangerously mystifying.

"Absinthe is the aphrodisiac of the self. The green fairy who lives in the Absinthe wants your soul."
Dracula by Bram Stoker, 1897
