Mind Game

The Mind Game features Ricard, a particularly smooth anise-flavored liqueur. Along with the Ricard, the recipe calls for blue curacao and reduced fat milk.

Mind Game Cocktail surrounded by cloves

Orange and anise is a surprising combination – spicy, tangy and sweet. The milk takes off any rough edges and makes the whole concoction wonderfully mild. It’s a really unusual and fascinating flavor which isn’t for everyone – anise never is – but it’s one of those recipes that’s very much worth trying at least once.


  • 1/4 ounce Ricard
  • 1/4 ounce blue curacao
  • 1/2 ounce reduced fat milk

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and pour in the ingredients. Shake well and strain the mix into a shot glass.
