My friend introduced me to this back in the spring whilst I was visiting her in North Wales, she's a really talented artist and this is her tipple of choice. I completely fell in love with it and it's now also become my go-to inspiration drink when something just isn't working. It fixes everything, either the inspiration comes or I make another one and no longer care as I'm immersed in a smoky Parisian bar.
Don't be put off by the Pernod, I also looked at the bottle with disdain when I spotted it but my god it's wonderful! Gone are the days of Pernod and blackcurrant, it's due for a comeback and I'm leading the charge!
- 25ml Pernod
- 75ml chilled cloudy apple juice
- 50ml chilled tonic water
- squeeze of lemon
- thin slice of lemon to garnish
Mix everything together (I use a mug) then pour into a coupe glass and garnish with your lemon.
