This fun drink is a twist on the Van Gogh's recipe that is on zaar. Because its level of alcohol absinthe shouldn't be drunk straight. Absinthe's popularity grew steadily until the 1840s, when absinthe was given to French troops as a fever preventative. When the troops returned home, they brought their taste for absinthe with them, and it became popular at bars and bistros.
