From the bartender’s corner – Malfy Anise

Was thinking of what might be a good cocktail to make with the Malfy gin. Went with a variation of gin anise drink. 2 and a half ounce of Malfy with half an ounce of sweet vermouth and half an ounce of anisette liqueur. Shaken with crushed ice and then poured in a cocktail glass.

The aniseed smell dueled mightily with the lemon. For the initial few sips, the aniseed prevailed and after rolling it in the mouth a couple of times, the others – including the lemon and orange peels started to make their presence felt.

The finish was long and predictably with both the aniseed and lemon making a pronounced effect.

Next time, I might try with a tad less aniseed and see how the lemon performs if it is a given a little more chance.
