Once upon a time, Absinthe was more popular than wine. It may have caused Van Gogh to cut his own ear off, and it's the basis for some of the craziest cocktails you'll ever see in a swanky bar. Ladies, we proudly present the Absinthe Night - for hen parties that absolutely, positively want to take a walk on the wild side!
The 'Green Fairy' has been the Bohemian drink of choice for centuries. Its bitter, vibrant green liquid can be more than 70% by volume, and it's supposed to have been the inspiration for poets, novelists and painters in the 19th and early 20th centuries. Oscar Wilde drank it, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec painted while drinking it, and Ol' Blue Eyes was known to take a tipple when he visited New Orleans.
Now, the legendary spirit has made a resurgence thanks to bans being lifted in popular hen party destinations all over the world. It crops up in posh drinks from London to Louisiana, and culture vultures can take it neat, artist style, in a warm glass with a spoonful of brown sugar.
For a hen night out with the Green Fairy, you'll get to try shots and cocktails made with different varieties of the spirit. Brilliant for boho hen dos and an Absinthe Night totally different way to start the bride's final weekend of freedom!
