Absinthe Spoon

800px-Absinthe_spoon--WikiPD

Long lambasted as a dangerous addictive drug, absinthe in the last 20 or so years has had a revival: it has been shown to be no more harmful to drinkers than other highly alcoholic spirits. The spoon pictured above pays tribute to two frequent associations with the “green fairy” (as it has been called): its links to fin-d’empire excess and to Victorian ideals of beauty. Enjoy (with good sense!)   RT

    What a lovely spoon! Wormwood, a smooth, floating bitter warmth, good for health and soul and spirit ( with or without alcohol)…….
