1 1⁄4 oz Blended rum, Denizen (3 Year)
3⁄4 oz Batavia Arrack
3⁄4 oz Chinese five spice syrup
Instructions

Shake with ice, strain into a chilled coupe. Garnish with a single star anise seed.

Notes

For the Chinese 5 spice syrup combine 1 cup each water and demerara sugar with toasted 5 spice ingredients (.5 tbsp cloves, 1 tbsp 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.

History
