Please can someone help me with a moment of nostalgia :roll:
I wonder if anyone else can remember a drink called Green Godess, which came in a green glass bottle shaped like a woman? Every Christmas back in the 1950's my mum used to get some, and as a child I just LOVED that bottle! Come to think of it, it's probably when my love of glass first began!
I was quite shocked recently when someone told me Green Godess was another name for Absynthe :shock: I just can't imagine my old mum, who never drank very much at all except the occasional sherry and lemonade at Christmas, drinking Absynthe - but there you go! :oops:
So ... Does anyone else remember Green Godess? Was it really Absynthe? Does anyone have a picture of the bottle?
Or did I dream it? :wink:
BTW, I still collect empty bottles and jars, if they are interesting shapes. My children have always said I was mad, but I say what are the bottle collectors of the future going to collect if everybody these days recycles everything? :lol:
