I just poured a shot of Pernod into a cafe glass and added the requisite amount of cold tap water. I now have a glassful of unappetizing urine-colored beverage instead of the normal milky cloudy aperatif I was expecting.
What the living fuck?
It TASTES like a glass of Pernod. The bottle is maybe a year old, but that’s normal for most US Pernod drinkers; we don’t have one but every couple months or so. Liquor doesn’t “go bad” in a year.
Help from booze chemists appreciated.
