This is a Smoggy Sazerac (our invention, thank you very much). As it usually is with most rather delicious things, this drink came about by accident and happenstance. The thing that makes this "smoggy" is that instead of swirling the glass with Pernod, the Pernod is left in. This makes the Pernod go smoky (or since it's green, "smoggy"). The drink is a little more anise-y than a traditional sazerac as a result.
Measure using your shot glass or jigger into a shaker filled with ice:
- 1/4 shot pastis (Pernod, Ricard)
- 1/2 tsp superfine sugar
- 1/4 shot water
- 2 dashes orange bitters
- 2 shots rye
