The Green Fairy


"Absinthe is the aphrodisiac of the soul. The green fairy who lives in the absinthe wants your soul, but you are safe with me”. Bram Stoker’s Dracula

While the ‘Pink Fairy’ is an armadillo found in Argentina, the ‘Green Fairy’ can be found fluttering around Café Hemingway’s in Kyalami. 

Ernest Hemingway, for whom we are named, was a frequent imbiber of absinthe, and in fact mentioned it in the short story “Hills like white elephants” as well as the brilliant book “For whom the bell tolls”. Though absinthe itself was banned, he continued to drink it regularly, with many speculating that he sourced it himself from Cuba. 

The origins and history of Absinthe is shrouded in mystery, and it’s effects have been hotly contested. But say what you will, it’s certainly beautiful, and they say you have not lived until the green fairy has danced upon your tongue. So come and dance with us.
