Last weekend we went to an Absinthe Salon as a different kind of lolita meet. I've never been to one before and it was so cool! The way you have to drink the absinthe is done in a traditional way by dripping water over a sugar cube into your cup to cause a chemical reaction in the alcohol and you really can taste the different flavours in it!
Laura organised it all for us and did an amazing job, it was gothic lolita themed and we were told that if you didn't wear gothic she would attack you with black lipstick - so I put down my pink dress and bought out a black one!

Halfway through the night we were all pretty drunk and had pretty much claimed territory of half of the whole bar but the people that worked there didn't mind because we were chatting to them all night. Our main waiter Nathanial was so nice and gave us recommendations for which ones to drink and also came and sat down with us at one point. I also think we may have converted him into dressing aristocrat.
My favourite one was the Absinthe du Chocolat' which was served in a pipe and tasted like chocolate *my favourite yummmmm*

Afterwards we stumbled out after getting photos taken, and then made our way to karaoke to drink more and sing a lot. I ended up getting home at like 4am oh man but it was definitely worth it!
