How to Make It

  1. Fill cocktail shaker with 1 cup ice. Add 3 tablespoons rye whiskey, 1 teaspoon simple syrup, and 2 dashes Peychaud's bitters; cover with lid, and shake until thoroughly chilled. Coat inside of a chilled 3 1/2-ounce glass with 1/4 teaspoon anise liqueur; pour out excess. Rub lemon rind strip over rim, and place in glass. Strain whiskey mixture into prepared glass.

  2. Cocktail Tip: Sidestep the extra calories by making cocktails with fresh fruit juices and calorie-free beverages rather than mixes, which are loaded with sugar.
