Pernod is an anise-flavored liqueur. We haven't had much luck with it at our house. If one is a big black licorice fan, I suppose it's great stuff. But we are not so much. My wife didn't even finish her drink.
Oh, well. They can't all be winners. If you are a licorice fan and ever find yourself at Chez Squid, I will have drinks to make for you.
