Sluttishly Boozy: Poet's Muse

When I take a sip of this I am instantly transported to 19th Century Paris. I don't know why this happens with this drink, but I feel I should be sat in a smoky bar talking philosophy and smoking Gitanes with handsome gallic men with impressive moustaches.

My friend introduced me to this back in the spring whilst I was visiting her in North Wales, she's a really talented artist and this is her tipple of choice. I completely fell in love with it and it's now also become my go-to inspiration drink when something just isn't working. It fixes everything, either the inspiration comes or I make another one and no longer care as I'm immersed in a smoky Parisian bar.

Don't be put off by the Pernod, I also looked at the bottle with disdain when I spotted it but my god it's wonderful! Gone are the days of Pernod and blackcurrant, it's due for a comeback and I'm leading the charge!

You'll need:
  • 25ml Pernod
  • 75ml chilled cloudy apple juice
  • 50ml chilled tonic water
  • squeeze of lemon
  • thin slice of lemon to garnish
Make it!

Mix everything together (I use a mug) then pour into a coupe glass and garnish with your lemon.


  1. That glass! Quite the most beautiful glass ever to contain a cocktail.

  2. A fine carboot find indeed, a pair of them for just £1, god I love car boot sales!

  3. That coupe is amazing! Question: what is cloudy apple juice? Will regular apple juice work?

    1. It's a very English thing, I think. You could use normal apple juice, but if you can find some fresh you'll get a better colour.

  4. Can these ingredients be found in the states?

    1. I think so, although you might not have cloudy apple juice (in which case, as above, just substitute for normal apple juice). Pernod is just a brand of the French drink pastis, so if you can find that (and there's no reason why you shouldn't) then you're sorted.
