Cocktail Wednesday - Guam Honey - Guoney??

It's almost time for another Cocktail Wednesday (it is Wednesday after all), but I thought I would get this posted before tonight.  Last week, while we were waiting for our carpet to be installed, we had Cocktail Wednesday at my YD and SIL's new apartment.

The cocktail was one that my SIL had tasted in Guam on his most recent trip there (for work) and wanted to try at home.  Recipe from here and renamed by us to be Guam Honey .. a little weird otherwise.

Ingredients:
  • Vodka (2 oz)
  • Amaretto (1 oz)
  • Honey (watered down) (0.5 oz)
  • Star Anise (1)
  • pepper (dash or two)
  • pineapple juice (2 oz)
We mixed the vodka, amaretto, honey, juice, and pepper in a shaker with ice and then poured into the glasses, put the star anise on top - put some fire to the star to cook it a little (?) - and added a dash of pepper.




It was really good.  I will definitely have this one again.  (even if the star anise does look a little like a bug in my drink).  The more you cooked the star, the better the drink tasted.
