Loved the spices in this drink. It was a strong drink, but the blend of the spices with the pineapple juice were awesome.

One of my Favorites

Nice acidity and spice with a tropical fruit sweetness to balance.

Christine E.

A great combination of flavors that go perfectly together. Thanks!

Starstruck left us floating in the cosmos. The flavors, while sweet, weren’t too sweet. The rum was potent and tasty. The anise added a tingly, pleasant licorice after taste. Would love to make this for an Academy Awards party but finding all the unique syrups would seem difficult. Overall, it’s a great drink.

It was okay, would have been a little better without the absinthe.

I was happy to receive this as my very first set, as this was a cocktail with ingredients I had not experienced before.
Flavorful and strong , everything you want in a drink!
Thank you Cocktail Courier for the introduction!

Delicious yet strong!

Loved this cocktail – tasted great, amazing presentation – but it is STRONG! My husband and I were both half in the bag after drinking one. Just a warning! We’re spacing this cocktail out over a few different nights so we don’t drink too much at once. 🙂
