Rimbaud drank it. Dégas painted it. Hemingway wrote about it. Dracula used it to seduce Mina. And, under its influence, Van Gogh cut off his ear. For many years, absinthe—or the “green fairy,” as this infamous drink was called—was banned, only adding to its mystique. What exactly does absinthe do in the human body? How does it work? Can you make your own and is it safe? Join us as we discuss the fascinating history of this once-banned drink, its chemical properties, and the science behind the intoxicating effects of the “green fairy.”
