Posted for ZWT #6's tour of Greece, Ouzo can be served straight in a shot glass or over ice in an old-fashioned or highball glass with a pitcher of water to dilute to taste. Ouzo is also an ingredient in several cocktails. Here is a summer drink where you can tailor the potency by altering the amount of lemonade.
- 1 ounce ouzo
- 1 dash blue curacao or 1 dash a red raspberry liquor, for color
- Pour ouzo and cordial into a highball glass with ice, top off with lemonade.
Delicious! Used homemade lemonade and I think my dash of blue was a little heavy... made for parting gifts challenge zwt9.
What a fabulous cocktail! I really enjoy Ouzo drinks, and I think the lemon juice in this recipe added an element that makes this drink stand out among all the rest. I used my favorite Old Fashioned Lemonade recipe for the lemonade ingredient. And I think that helped to make this a winning recipe that is going right into my "keeper" folder. Thanks for sharing your recipe, CaliforniaJan.
This is a great drink. But we would have enjoyed it more with just half of it in a smaller glass. Thanks California Jan :) Made for the Zwizzle Chicks of ZWT
