As a Pernod drinker, I can't state how pleasant this "cooler" style cocktail is. There's something cooling about Pernod's sweet absinthe substitute flavor with soda and the Victory has it in spades. Grenadine adds a color change and a bit of fruit, and I opted for a cucumber garnish.

This last step really improved a drink that may have been all one note, or at least the many involved in Pernod. That fresh scent and watery taste of cucumber crunch went so well with the fizzy and licorice spice of the cocktail that I urge you to repeat it.
  • 2 oz. Pernod
  • 1 oz. grenadine
  • sparkling water (Perrier used)
  • cucumber slices (optional)
Combine Pernod and grenadine in a mixing glass with ice. Shake and strain into a highball glass full of fresh ice. Top with sparkling water and stir gently. Garnish with cucumber slices.
