The extraordinarily generous Libationgoddess shares this with the faithful:
3/4 oz Fresh Lime Juice
3/4 oz Simple Syrup (1-1, uncooked)
1/4 oz Pernod
1 sprig mint
2 oz Plymouth Gin
Muddle / shake / fine strain
Glass: Small Cocktail
Garnish: None -- the opacity of the drink is the "Pearl"
Wow, excellent work. I've been trying to crack the recipe as well (with admittedly less success than you've shown). Also great point about the muddling a few posts up, was at Pegu last night and the bartender did in fact muddle the mint as you described (in a shaker with the room temp. liquids).
Everyone I know is enamored with this drink, so glad we finally have the recipe : )
