Artist: unknown

Advertising: Rosinette, Absinthe Rosé Oxygénée

Era: 1890s

An unrecorded lithographic poster for Rosinette, Absinthe Rosé Oxygénée, printed by Camis around 1900. This is the only know historical reference to a rosé absinthe. 
Absinthe is historically described as a distilled, highly alcoholic beverage and is commonly referred to in historical literature as "la fée verte" (the green fairy). Absinthe arose to great popularity as an alcoholic drink in late 19th- and early 20th-century France, particularly among Parisian artists and writers. Owing in part to its association with bohemian culture, the consumption of absinthe was opposed by social conservatives and prohibitionists.
