This is the original snowball. It is strained into a cocktail glass, not served on crushed ice like the Roman Snowball. The Pernod does cloud up in a yellowish precipitation of herbs, so half-and-half is needed to keep this drink looking white.

I am enjoying the richness of Mt. Defiant absinthe superior when it comes to making the Snowball stronger and drier than it would be with Pernod. Do as you wish, but if you have a good absinthe, you should consider using it.
  • 2 oz. gin (Plymouth used)
  • 1 oz. Pernod (Mt. Defiance absinthe used)
  • 1/2 oz. half-and-half
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
