    Lol, Yelena for the name "the green fairy": very true! 🙂 Great photo and idea. I imagine there is a door behind and it opens to Fontanka river, where you can take a night boat ride… You made me miss St.Peterburg…

    Marina, the idea behind this photo is decadent drink, broken heart and memories-)) It can take place in St.Petersburg, some time ago-)))

    Oh dear friend, I know what you mean! I had a clear image in my head: late XIX century… sometime in January… on a cold snowy night… Yes, those memories go perfect with Abcinth… 🙂

    Amazing photo from a truly talented woman. Thanks for sharing Yelena. Absinthe is huge here so I can just run to the corner and get a bottle to try your cocktail. Thanks!
