Glad Eyes

What a simple and weird drink. It's going for that crisp cooling effect that peppermint schnapps and Pernod are known to have. The flavor is instantly cooling in the mouth and in the body. Interestingly, this drink is nearly clear in the mixing glass, but as soon as you stir it with ice it becomes a cloudy yellow-green, which is a cool trick if you are making it for someone.

But I don't really recommend making it for anyone. Americans have a hard time with anise flavors and don't appreciate overwhelming mint flavors either. I thought it was a good way to use up my peppermint liqueur that I made two years ago. The stuff is a little harsh, but nothing stands up to two ounces of Pernod. It covers all.
  • 2 oz. Pernod
  • 1 oz. peppermint schnapps
Mix all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
