Turf Cocktail

I really like the concept of this cocktail, an herbaceous and zesty gin cocktail with anise flavor. This time, though, I opted to omit the Pernod (which can be too overpowering even in small proportions.) In its place I used Don Ciccio & Figili's Finnochietto, a fennel and dill infusion with a softer anise flavor and less sweetness. Vigilant gin makes this a D.C. local spirits cocktail.

The result was really enjoyable. I even recommend using a whole ounce of Finnochietto in place of the dry vermouth, since it plays that role well, too. Just make this about the gin, lemon juice, and dry fennel liqueur and you have a mouth puckering cocktail with complexity.
    Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
