Funny Group.... Aint It?

I love primarily Mastiha, or Masticha or Mastic liquor call it what you like....

I find quite odd grouping together raki ouzo and masticha, since the latter has no resemblance whatsoever or no connection with the other two.

Being Greek I love all 3 of them.... Probably this is the connection... they are original Greek alcoholic beverages... Well I love ouzo in cooking... and I love to nibble over some Greek delicasies and a small glass of ouzo...

I like raki made the way we do it in the winter... With some honey, cinamon and clove. love the way it is being served here, in a tin container with its surface set on fire.

I like tapping shut the fire with my own palm and then pouring rakomelo (honey-raki) in the tiny gorgeous shot-like glasses for me and my loved ones....

Mastich liquer is the perfect aperitif and digestif for me.... Like it better and prefer it over another favourite... the Italian Limoncello.... Put it in your freezer and it aquires this lovely gelly consistency! Simply perfect, that nectar that pops out of the Skinos trees on the miracle island of Chios... Here and only here...

Oh yeah.... I am Greek , all the way to the bitter end.... all the way till the core of my bones.
