Add honey syrup and Pastis to a small Collins glass or coupe. Slowly add the green tea, and watch the liquid become milky-cloudy. Enjoy while warm.

Esker Grove is the bright, modern, airy cafe and dining room inside the Walker Art Center, overlooking the Sculpture Garden. In addition to classic and contemporary cocktails, wine, beer, and Spyhouse coffee, chef Doug Flicker creates New American fare.
