As the most popular drink in Belle Epoque France absinthe had glasses especially designed for it. Absinthe glasses have a line or a reservoir to show the correct amount of absinthe to pour in. Absinthe glasses come in a great variety of shapes and sizes, many of them wonderfully elegant. Most are tall, large enough for the appropriate quantity of water poured into the absinthe.
