Johnny Cocktail

The name of this drink reminds me of cheap conveniences like Johnny On The Spot port-a-potties and Johnny Cab, the robotic cab in Schwarzenegger's Total Recall. In terms of making the drink, it was very easy and required few tools. The alcohol content of sloe gin and triple sec is slightly less potent, so it is a weaker and convenient cocktail.

Taste it, though and it is rich and fruity with a balanced amount of Pernod to keep it interesting and prevent if from becoming cough syrupy sweet. If you have sloe gin, this is an easy and rewarding drink.
  • 2 oz. sloe gin
  • 1 oz. triple sec
  • 1 tsp. Pernod
Combine all ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir until chilled and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
