Review:

Lime and minty freshness with gin's botanical complexity along with subtle but assertive anise notes. Appropriately, the finished drink has an almost pearl-like appearance.

History:

Adapted from a recipe created in 2006 by Audrey Saunders at the Pegu Club, New York City, USA. This cocktail is a tribute to late 1800s French architecture, a period when sipping absinthe was fashionable in Paris, represented by pastis in this cocktail.
