About Face

1 12 oz Kummel, Gilka
12 oz Simple syrup
12 oz Gin, Citadelle
34 oz Lemon juice
3   Raspberry
1   Egg yolk
Build in a shaker, adding yolk last and giving it a dry shake. Shake hard quickly then strain into a collins glass. Fill with crushed ice.
Reminds me of a Golden Age cocktail from the VH days. Combier Kummel works too but has even more caraway and I think it a bit much.
Made for the Blackbird Winter 2014/15 menu, flavor combination introduced by Fernando Villa.
