Fallen Angel

Δείτε την συνταγή

If you’ve ever visited Istanbul’s monumental Hagia Sophia, you may have wondered how its extraordinary dome stays up. Well, it hasn’t always, because on this day in 558 it collapsed during an earthquake.

Legend has it that Emperor Justinian was inspired to build the dome following a visitation by an angel in a dream. It was to be higher and wider than any previously built, and held aloft with a minimum of support to create the illusion of floating.

Today we're drinking a Fallen Angel as we think about poor Justinian standing amid the rubble of his angel-inspired dome.
