A mixed drink that is (another) variant on the martini. The Some Moth has a dry dusty flavor with a slightly musty scent. The syrupy sweetness of the Pernod is absorbed by the dry vermouth. The anise flavor is supported nicely by the gin. This is a wonderful drink for an overcast evening.

Garnish with cocktail onion and drizzle a teaspoon of Pernod (slightly sweet) or Ricard (a bit drier) over the top.
