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!
