In my team, we had to create a cocktail including Monkey Shoulder whisky. All of the team members came up with a recipe and we tried them all out and concluded that my recipe was the tastiest. We decided to use my recipe for the cocktail competition.

Since I prefer fresh cocktails over sweet ones, I really wanted to create a fresh cocktail with a different sweetener than usual; resulting in the use of agave syrup. The anisette gives an extra flavour to the cocktail, but it's not too overpowering. The end result is a fresh, unique cocktail with a bit sourness from the lime rim. (We won the competition, too.)
