About this Cocktail

A strong and herbal twist on the "Momisette" or "Momi" – a classic French longdrink. The Chartreuse adds both a bit of colour and a nice long finish. "Momi" is usually served 2:1 with ice water, but I like the full, undiluted flavour assault of anise, almonds and bitter herbs. Do try to use homemade orgeat – it's really easy to make and offers up so many more flavours than its industrial counterpart. If shaken it will also slightly emulsify and create a thin, but pleasant foam on top.

  • 1,5 oz pastis
  • 1 oz orgeat
  • 1/2 oz green Chartreuse

Shake effortlessly with large ice. Strain into a chilled coupette.

    Hey Zack. It's not quite as fancy as it looks – a no name strainer I got from Swedish dealer A bargain at $15.
