What could be more challenging to the throat than strong alcohol? This cocktail needs water to diminish the strong flavour, in addition to that we need richberry as well to make the flavour inviting. No added sugar needed.
¼ teaspoon anise-flavored liqueur
1 teaspoon water
2 dashes Peychaud bitters
¼ cup rye whiskey
1 lemon twist, for garnish
Step 1 Store a cocktail glass in the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes before making the cocktail.
Step 2 Pour the anise-flavored liqueur into the frosted glass and turn to coat the sides. Dump excess liqueur in the sink (or drink it!). Add water, and bitters to the glass, stirring to dissolve. Strain into the glass and pour in the rye. Stir and garnish with a twist of lemon.
Mocktail (non-alcoholic): If you wish to have a delicious non-alcoholic version, please feel free to take the alcohol out and follow the same procedure.
Consume Miracle Berry: Just before digging in, chew 1 or more freeze-dried miracle berry (this can also be done during the preparation of ingredients). Ensure to remove pits to avoid a bitter taste.
Fact: The active ingredient miraculin from miracle berry will turn sour foods such as lemon, lime, orange, grapefruit, non-fat yoghurt and other citrus food to taste sweet without adding sugar. We recommend two halves or 2 servings for maximum effectiveness. Make sure to follow instructions from the back of the packaging.
Warning: Alcohols are for over 21 years of age and above. Drink responsibly, do not drink and drive.
