Pernod (pastis) Classique

"This a summer staple at our house, in French homes and on cafe terraces. A very thirst-quenching and refreshing drink, the taste will grow on you. Pernod is the brand name of the French licorice-flavored liqueur pastis, and you can find it under either of these names, as well as Ricard. It is traditionally served to you in two parts: the pernod with two ice cubes, in a special glass that is broader at the top than at the bottom; and a small pitcher of water so that you can mix it as strongly or weakly as you wish. I've listed here the classic combination."

    DH and I enjoyed the Pernod Classique with a lovely summer meal of fresh sea scallops, we thought it complimented the seafood perfectly! Light, simple and refreshing, this will be a regular at our house. Thank you FlemishMinx for sharing.

    You said it. The classic mixture: 1 part Pernod and 5 parts water. I use mineral water (non sparkling) and instead of ice cubes I use to put Pernod and water into the fridge for a while. A refreshing aperitif. Never change a winning team.
