Rye and Absinthe instead of anise . : )
I had to use trial and error to figure out how much simple syrup to add. I finally settled upon 1/4 ounce. I personally like a bit extra anise, but I suggest you try the recipe as stated first. I didn't have rye, so I used bourbon and I garnished with cherries.
There is information missing from this recipe. How much of the simple syrup do you use for each drink. It can't be the entire amount. Otherwise a good recipe.
