Drink of the Week: Attention

... or, as I call it: Swamp Water. Seriously, it was that cloudy and green and freaky looking: the picture does not lie. And yes, I drank it anyway.

Like most web-enabled drinkologists, we use cocktailDB every now and then. It's a fun site: you enter ingredients that you have on hand, and it spits out many drink choices.

Somehow, this is what we ended up with tonight. The Attention tastes just like black jelly beans. If you like black jelly beans and want to drink them this is a great drink for you - otherwise, not so much.

Stir together in an iced mixing glass:
  • 1 ounce gin
  • 1/2 ounce dry vermouth
  • 1/2 ounce pastis
  • 1/2 ounce Creme de Violette
When chilled, pour into a cocktail glass.

Anything with pastis in it is going to taste like licorice no matter what you add! It's best with just ice and water added. If you like licorice.

I love the stuff.
