3/4 oz. Pernod

Pour Pernod into a Champagne flute and fill with Champagne.

Gruet sparkling white wine. Once in a very blue moon I meet a cocktail I just can’t like. The moon must have been blue tonight. I’ve never been a fan of Champagne or sparkling white wine; it’s musty and dry and just not tasty to me. Pernod has it’s uses, but only in very small amounts with lots of other things to modify the intense licorice/anise flavor. Put the two together, and… well… let’s just say I barely finished it. Kind of sour with an unpleasant bitterness that seemed to intensify the longer it sat.
