The thick fog has me in a London state of mind - damn it would be a good night to watch Sweeny Todd...again.Wonder if the Demon Barber of Fleet Street threw back a few of these in Mrs. Lovett's pie shop before pulling his blades out:
1 3/4 oz gin
1/2 oz pernod [or any anise-flavoured liquor]
Shake, strain & serve over crushed ice. If you want a garnish, that's your own bloody business.
If it's only half as tasty as Mr. Todd - then damn, it's gotta be good.
