Cocktail of the day: The Preview

This is one I haven’t seen before, and according to the contributor was Rat Pack member Peter Lawford’s drink of choice. Thanks to Chris Viljoen for sending it in.

The Preview

1-1/2 ounces gin.
1 ounce Cointreau.
1/4 teaspoon of Ricard, Pernod or Herbsaint.

Pour the Ricard (or Pernod or Herbsaint) into a chilled cocktail glass and swirl to coat the inside of the glass; shake out the excess. Place the rest of the ingredients in a cocktail shaker with cracked ice, shake and serve straight up in the coated glass, garnished with a long, curly twist of orange peel.
