  • Used Whistle Pig 10 yr rye and Stirrings simple syrup. Not sure how to measure 1 dash of Pernod, I poured a VERY small amount in the glass as a rinse and poured out the rest. Rate 4.0 A small but hefty drink.
  • This is by far, my favorite cocktail...especially when I have a sore throat. It is like a cocktail and medicine at the same time :)
  • Love this. Had it recently in New Orleans where the drink was first invented.
