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.
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.
