  • Flying Frenchman (Absinthe Espresso Martini) image

    Monday 20/10/14

    "Wise pilgrims, let us reach The Absinthe with its green pillars..." TheBohemian wildman poet Arthur Rimbaud was born on this day in 1854, to a respectable military family in rural France. In Paris, as a teenage runaway, he grew his hair long, drank, drugged, had a passionate affair with the older poet, Paul Verlaine - and produced some outstanding poetry.

    Aged only 21, Rimbaud gave it all up to travel the world - he would be dead before he reached 40. The Flying Frenchman, created by London's Andy Mil, is the perfect tribute to an absinthe fan who traded coffee.
