International Cocktail

I swear that I've made this drink before, but then it was just another cocktail that spans Europe with its spirits. The idea is simple. French cognac and Pernod, Italian triple sec, Russian vodka keep the drink going. Vodka seems to have an important part in the cocktail despite its small proportions. I was surprised how balanced the drink was, and I think it was the vodka giving the ingredients space to shine.

Pernod is the obvious flavor here, but it is softened by the triple sec and cognac so that you get bitter orange flavors and oak. I think this is one of the better Pernod cocktails, especially for someone who doesn't like the anise flavor as much.
  • 2 oz. cognac
  • 1/2 oz. triple sec
  • 1/2 oz. Pernod
  • 2 tsp. vodka
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
