A Green fairy fan :)

-- By  Prakriti in  India on Wed, 29 Mar 2017 at 12:12.

So, I looked at this gorgeous Green Fairy and fell in love. Smelled it and I fell head over heels in love with it. It was like a drug to me that I couldn't really resist. My definition of drug is not drug-drug/ substances but anything you cant resist and wants it again and again. It could be a place, thought, person or thing..

I took the very first sip and was spell bound in it's taste. it was magical because I finally got to taste the thing I couldn't resist. The first neat sip castes it spell over me and I gulped almost half the quarter neat because I wanted to feel the taste, the pure taste of it. That's the thing with me ;-). Well nothing happened as they say like hallucination, Devil effect and blah blah blah... I was all happy and fine and in love with it ever since.

Yes, that is the magic of it, it makes you fall in love with it :-)

Absinthe: The symbol of 'la vie boheme' for over a hundred years. More than a century on, the drink still retains its original appeal.
