Absinthe

An alcoholic drink popularized in France in the early 20th century associated with Bohemian life and also known as “The Green Fairy” made from wormwood, aniseed and other aromatic plants such as star anis, fennel, hyssop, veronica, lemon, lemon balm, angelica root, dittany, coriander, juniper and nutmeg. Wormwood is its principal ingredient and lends it its characteristic bitter taste and green colour.
