Very interesting concoction, indeed. I made it with orange/grapefruit juice and it was ok. I am used to drinking ouzo as the french drink pernod or ricard, which are very similar aniseed drinks to ouzo, with some plain water to make it all misty and a splash of grenadine.

Well this was interesting. I think you have to develop a taste of ouzo, which is so different to me. I used a lemon-lime drink (Sierra Mist)in place of the fruit drinks and didn't have a highball glass so just used a tumbler, thus no photo for this one. Thanks EV

Whew! That ouzo really gave me a punch in the shoulder. Hehe! Next time I will either have to lighten up on the ouzo or increase the orange juice. Just for fun, I think I will do the latter. Lovely and tasty!

The first sip was good, the second one even better, and after the third I definitely knew I would fix myself another drink! I used grapefruit juice and loved it that way! Well done, Ev!

Good stuff! Although the ouza can be quite strong I added extra orange juice.

Sambuca I like with coffee, but Ouzo was initially a bit too strong for me, but I too decided to give this recipe 5 stars after getting used to it. Instead of grenadine I used pomegranate juice. I don't know whether the two are interchangeable but it makes for a very healthful drink with grapefruit juice (if you can excuse the liquor being there too):D

I used orange juice that I had on hand and only 1 ounce of ouzo. Enjoyed this a lot and will be trying the lemonade next!

Yum! Very refreshing. I used fresh lemonade in this. Not too sweet- the splash of grenadine was just right!
