Spring Mist

food and drink

BY: Eric Vellend

This gin-based libation brings together mint, cucumber and elderflower for a spring garden in a glass. A final spritz of Pernod lends a gentle hint of anise. If you have absinthe on hand, feel free to use it instead of Pernod, but one spray will do: it’s powerful stuff.

3 slices English cucumber
7 mint leaves
¾ oz St. Germain Elderflower liqueur
2 oz gin
1 dash orange bitters
Ice
2 sprays of Pernod from a mister

1. Muddle cucumber, mint and St. Germain in a mixing glass or cocktail shaker. Add gin and bitters. Add enough ice to come above liquid. Stir until ice cold, about 30 seconds. Finestrain into a chilled coupe. Spray Pernod over surface of drink.
