“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
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.
