Bar Aid - Lets spin that wheel! #55

So Friday is now Mid Century drink day!  Yeah!  Put it on your calendar.  All the recipes will come from my super cool Bar Aid.  There are a total of 80 drink recipes, so to make the selection random I have a printed out each number on a slip of paper and put them in a jar.  Every week, one will be drawn and made, which kinda makes this like an eight ball, but with alcohol.  Sweet!  Today's number is....55!  A Millionaire # 1  (can I have two of these? the Millionaire not the drink)

RECIPE:  2/3 Dry Gin, 1/3 Pernod, 1 Egg White, 1 dash Anisette, Shake well with ice and strain into glass.

Seems easy enough…on a side note, don’t get weirded out by the egg white guys, it makes your drink a little frothy.  It is a good thing I swear.

 I didn’t have Pernod or Anisette on hand, so I made a quick trip to the local liquor store.  There I learned that Pernod is actually pronounced Per-no, being French and all. (I was seriously asking for Per-nod, I must have sounded totally green! Ha)   Also, per the all-knowing wikipedia, Sambuca can be substituted for Anisette. (they didn't have any)

Now that I have all the ingredients…Let make that drink (said in my “Let’s make a deal” voice)

With a little pouring, cracking, and shaking....Voila!

Down the hatch! 

VERDICT: Good, but only if you like licorice and I do.  Tastes rather like a black jelly bean in liquid form.


  1. I LOVE this idea. The posting, the recipe sharing, and I want one of those bar aids. I don't think I'll try this particular drink, as I do not like licorice flavor, but I look forward to future postings!

  2. Thanks artistofmath!

    I figured this is a great way to slowly build up a stellar bar. :D
