This is a seasonal rendition on the classic Alexander No. 2 cocktail:
2 oz Gin
.05 oz Creme de menthe
1 oz Sweet cream (or heavy cream)
1 oz Orgeat
Prepare a cocktail class with an absinthe wash. In a mixing glass with ice, combine all ingredients with the exception of the absinthe. Shake 20 times. Strain into cocktail glass and serve. Garnish with star anise and a light nutmeg dusting.
