Mama Cass

Yuval Soffer, Gatsby, Jerusalem, Israel

“This drink is now two years old. It’s doing really well in a lot of bars in Tel Aviv so I thought I should share the love.” Yuval Soffer

Mama CassPernod, as rinse

1 egg white

22.5 ml (.75 oz) honey syrup (3:1)

22.5 ml (.75 oz) fresh lemon juice

30 ml (1 oz) London dry gin

30 ml (1 oz) Becherovka

Peychaud’s bitters, as garnish

1 star anise pod, as garnish

Rinse a double old-fashioned glass with Pernod and add ice. Shake all ingredients vigorously, then strain into another shaker and shake again without ice. Double-strain into the glass and add the garnishes.

gaz sez: I’m a bit of an anise freak, so this was a natch for me, and I must say that gin and Becherovka tango tightly in the Mama Cass cocktail.  The Peychaud’s as an aromatic garnish, here, though, really adds the crown to the drink and makes it stand head and tails above the rest of the crowd.
