While Jeff Resnick (from my Jeff Resnick Mystery series) is a bartender, today's drink recipe actually comes from Recipes To Die For: A Victoria Square Cookbook. In it, Katie Bonner included a signature drink for all the people from Victoria Square or Artisans Alley who contributed to the cookbook.
Since we're talking mysteries, here ... today's drink is the Corpse Reviver, something apparently is needed in Amherst, NY, McKinlay Mill, NY and Stoneham, NH:
¾ ounce Pernod
Pour the Pernod into a champagne flute, fill with champagne,
sprinkle on a little lemon juice. Voila!
Yield: 1 serving
What will you be drinking at happy hour?
