Float star anise
How to make:
MUDDLE (smash) a star anise in base of stirring glass. Add other ingredients, STIR with ice and extra fine strain into chilled glass.
OR Omit the muddled star anise and instead pre-prepare Star anise-infused Italian red bitter liqueur by infusing 18-20 star anise pods into a 70-75cl bottle. Seal and shake periodically over 8 hours, then strain through a dampened coffee filter or cheesecloth.

Negroni-like with tequila rather than gin and a touch of star anise spice.
