Ubecherovka (Original Recipe)

This is is an original cocktail using the Czech herbal liqueur, Becherovka, gin and honey syrup. It was dry and pleasingly herbaceous in nose and flavor.

Filibuster's Dual Cask gin is aged in whiskey and wine barrels. It has only four botanicals, but that makes it easily mixable with dry or dessert drinks. In this case it gets out of the way of the Becherovka, which is honeyed and sweet. Honey, therefore, is a perfect sweetener to balance the acid of the lemon juice. Just to punch up the herbal scent, I dropped an anise star on top.
  • 2 oz. Filibuster Dual Cask gin
  • 1 oz. Becherovka 
  • 1 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz. honey syrup
  • anise star
Combine liquid ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Float the anise star on top.
