Button Hook

This is one of those gross sounding drinks that exists because it is used as a restorative for drunks. You can bet that the presence of creme de menthe means that someone was trying to freshen their breath and recover from a hangover with this drink. If you doubt me, then consider this. If a button hook is like a shoe horn, than this drink is the tool that helps you get dressed back in the days when you needed button hooks and shoe horns to put on your clothes.
  • 1 oz. brandy
  • 1 oz. apricot brandy
  • 1 oz. white creme de menthe
  • 1 oz. Pernod (1/2 oz. Absente used)
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake or stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
