Pure absinthe is first poured into a specific type of glass, on top of which a special absinthe spoon is placed. A sugar cube is placed on the spoon, and iced water is slowly dripped over it. The absinthe is diluted in three to five parts water. The way in which absinthe is prepared plays a key role in the way its tastes, allowing the herbal aromas to be released and to intensify with respect to the other aromas. Take note of the seating in the Sarah B., which represents the shape of an absinthe spoon.
This atmospheric absinthe bar is inspired by, and named after, the divine Sarah Bernhardt (1844-1923), the queen of the French tragedy. Absinthe or “the green fairy” was initially used for medicinal purposes by Henriette Henriod in 1792. After having acquired the recipe, Daniel Henri Dubied and his son-in-law, founded the first absinthe distillery: Dubied Père et Fils in 1798. In great demand among the artistic milieu, it was even said that absinthe might have been the cause of madness for certain artists.
The Sarah Bernhardt Ballroom was name after this French actress, daughter of a Dutch courtesan and a French magistrate, born in Paris in 1844. In 1859, Sarah entered the conservatory, where she received awards for her work as a tragic and comic actress. She was hired at the Odeon where she began to get noticed. Sarah Bernhardt first visited Canada in 1880, coming to Montreal to perform the plays Adrienne Lecouvreur and La Dame aux camélias.
