1 3⁄4 oz Gin, Citadelle
1⁄4 oz Herbal liqueur, Green Chartreuse
1⁄2 oz Chinese five spice syrup
3⁄4 oz Pineapple juice
3⁄4 oz Lemon juice
Instructions

Shake with ice for 15 seconds, strain into an iced Collin glass. Garnish with pineapple or lemon wedge.

Notes

Also works well with cinnamon syrup or falernum instead of the Chinese 5 spice syrup.

For the Chinese 5 spice syrup combine 1 cup each water and demerara sugar with toasted 5 spice ingredients (.5 tbsp cloves, 1 tbsp each Szechuan peppercorn & fennel seeds, 2 tbsp star anise, 1 cracked cinnamon stick). Sous vide for 2 hours at 145 degrees, plunge into ice bath, strain and bottle. Add .25 oz overproof vodka if desired to extend shelf life. Alternately use 3 tbsp of quality 5 spice powder. Or there are also several stove top recipes for 5 spice syrup available online.
