Ouzo is the national drink of Greece. It's a clear liquor that is made from pressed grapes, aniseed, and a variety of herbs. It has a licorice flavor similar to Anise and can be consumed on the rocks or mixed with water. Ouzo is traditionally sipped slowly over a period of several hours at little bars called ouzeries where it's paired with tasty snacks such as octopus, salad, sardines, calamari, fried zucchini and clams. Here it is paired with Drambuie and Coke to make a tasty cocktail. Try this drink for your next happy hour, to get the recipe,
