Pastis (which we photographed, discussed, and fawned over here) is an anise-flavored liqueur popular in southern France. When we discovered that there was a pastis cocktail involving grenadine, we couldn't wait to use our delicious homemade grenadine in a new (to us) drink! The Tomate (French for "tomato") is a sweet drink, and the taste of anise is very strong. (Licorice-haters to the left.) The splash of grenadine gives the cocktail a fabulous blush of pink. Mmmm... is summer here yet?
- 1 part pastis
- 4 parts cold water
Pour pastis into a glass, followed by a splash of grenadine. Fill the glass with 4 parts cold water and a couple ice cubes, if desired. À la vôtre!
