Absinthe, the favourite tipple of Henri de Toulouse Lautrec, was ever associated with celebrities. For instance, this poster depicts two famous actors of the day — Constant Coquelin and Sarah Bernhardt — drinking absinthe. The actors later sued, as their likenesses had been used without permission. I would love to drink absinthe with Sarah Bernhardt. It's definitely up there on my theoretical wish list of experiences.

I had the misfortune to try some absinthe, full strength and prepared in the traditional way. There is a reason so many artists went insane, I had a complete blackout!
