Reply Marina January 13, 2013 at 2:03 am 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… Reply melangery January 13, 2013 at 2:09 am Marina, the idea behind this photo is decadent drink, broken heart and memories-)) It can take place in St.Petersburg, some time ago-))) Reply Marina January 13, 2013 at 3:43 am 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… 🙂 Reply melangery January 14, 2013 at 1:25 am You have a wonderful imagination Marina! I wish we can have a cup of coffee together one day-)) Reply Rosa's Yummy Yums January 15, 2013 at 7:54 am A gorgeous shot! So pretty and retro-looking… Cheers, Rosa Reply Spicie Foodie January 16, 2013 at 3:02 pm 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! Leave a Reply to Marina Cancel ReplyName * Email * Notify me of follow-up comments by email.
