Author Notes

Another cocktail brought to you from the Teroforma Bar, here’s the Floating Star Martini. Often how food smells is overlooked while we eat. Yes we know when dinner smells delicious while cooking but so often once it’s brought to the table we look to see if it appears tasty then dig in. We love how much the perfume of star anise adds to the flavor of the Floating Star. This is a simple and festive way to kick off Thanksgiving & light enough to drink throughout the afternoon leading up to dinner. —teroforma
