    Rita~'s Note:

    Bring the Swiss Alps to you!I just posted this recipe on honor of the Gruyere Gurlz climb to the Alps. At least in a glass. After climbing the Alps I wanted to bring back the memories. So I tossed this drink together. In the 1860s, absinthe had become so popular that in most of Fraces cafés and cabarets 5 p.m. signalled l’heure verte ('the green hour'). Still, it remained expensive and was favored mainly by the bourgeoisie and eccentric Bohemian artists. By the 1880s, however, the price had dropped significantly, the market expanded, and absinthe soon became the drink of France; by 1910 the French were consuming 36 million litres of absinthe per year.
