Ouzo (Greek: ούζο, IPA: [ˈuzo]) is a dry anise-flavored aperitif that is widely consumed in Greece. It is made from rectified spirits that have undergone a process of distillation and flavoring. Its taste is similar to other anise liquors like pastis, sambuca, rakı and arak.
What is a popular drink in Greece?
The most popular liquor in Greece is “Ouzo.” Ouzo is a dry type of aperitif that is made of anise flavor. Ouzo is a type of brandy and has a wonderful, strong taste and a very nice flavor that is a favorite amongst all liquor lovers. Ouzo is made from aniseed, and it is the pride of Greece.
Ouzo is customarily served neat, without ice, and often in a tall, skinny glass called a kanoakia (similar to a highball glass). Greeks may add iced water to dilute the strength, which causes the liquid to turn an opaque, milky white.
Ouzo drinking is a cultural ritual that has its own special time and place, usually in late afternoon or early evening, and always accompanied by small plates of food.
