A famous lithographic engraving by Loustaunau, showing a "zouave" or French North African soldier relaxing over an absinthe at a pavement cafe table on the Esplanade des Invalides. It was these absinthe-loving soldiers who brought the taste for the anise-flavoured drink back with them to France in the mid-19th century.
