I haven't had Ouzo for quite a while, and haven't had it since going gluten-free. My husband and I were introduced to it when we visited his uncle, who lives in Germany.

Here's something I found on it at http://www.glutenfreedrinks.com/AlcoholBeverages2.htm

"Ouzo is created using aniseed, fennel seed and other aromatic plants. It is a considered a traditional drink of Greece. The traditional way to drink Ouzo is 1 part Ouzo and 2 parts water, but it can also be mixed with other types of cocktails."

Water? I don't remember any water...? :huh:

Heh, I've seen that, but I'm wondering if they started with grain spirits like gin or something. Ouzo is 40% ABV; a rather high alcohol content for something made from herbs and grapes alone. I've finally made it a month without getting sick, and I'd hate to celebrate only to start over. :)
