After rummaging through a dead mans abandoned house, and finding this amazing little syrup bottle, I was playing around in my bar and created this tasty little anise and mint syrup. Working from that point, I knew a dead man would only drink bourbon. In this delicate little concoction, you should taste predominantly mint, pure Kentucky limestone filtered water and anise seed.
2 ounce Bulleit bourbon
2/3 ounce Herring cherry liqueur
1/3 ounce fresh lemon
2 dashes Angostura bitters
Sprig of mint
Muddle the star anise and mint in a crystal mixing glass. Add the remaining ingredients.
Stir down. Serve in Coupette glass. Garnish with one mint leaf.
