Hey Now, You're an All Star

Hey Now Cocktail

This cocktail is just about as fun as the song for which it is named. Occasionally, we get cocktail submissions from the Internet, and this one comes to us from Chris West (@pourmansalmanac on Instagram).  Check out his feed for more fun cocktail creations! From his post:

can I explain this cocktail using only lyrics to all star by smash mouth? no, but I’ll try. someBODY once told me that star fruit is sweet, slightly tart, and delicious. okay, google told me that, and upon tasting, can confirm true. it also serves as a stunning flavor addition to a daiquiri, which is a perfect drink, but what’s wrong with taking the backstreets? god. stop it. riffing on a classic daiquiri spec, we’re splitting the sour between star fruit and lime, going full hemingway with the addition of maraschino liqueur for the sweet. as for the booze, we’re using an amber rum, as well as a ridiculous peach brandy. finally, you’re an all star, not one star, so we’ve added an absinthe rinse and shaved star anise onto our garnish.

3 slices star fruit
¾ oz lime juice
¾ oz Luxardo maraschino liqueur
1 dropper Bittermens hopped grapefruit bitters
— muddle —
1½ oz Gosling amber rum
½ oz Catoctin Creek peach brandy
— shake over ice // double strain —
Mt Defiance absinthe rinse
Garnish with anise-dusted star fruit
