"Albert Maignan's "Green Muse" (1895): A poet succumbs to the Green Fairy.
Absinthe (i/ˈæbsɪnθ/ ab-sinth or /ˈæbsænθ/ ab-santh; French: [absɛ̃t]) is historically described as a distilled, highly alcoholic (45–74% ABV / 90-148 proof) beverage.[1][2][3][4] It is an anise-flavoured spirit derived from botanicals, including the flowers and leaves of Artemisia absinthium (a.k.a. "grande wormwood"), together with green anise, sweet fennel, and other medicinal and culinary herbs. Absinthe traditionally has a natural green colour but may also be colourless. It is commonly referred to in historical literature as "la fée verte" (the green fairy)."
