By • July 4, 2011 • 22 Comments



Author Notes: Not much to say... summer fruit, summer booze... This makes a pretty good 4th of July breakfast refreshment ;) Enjoy!nogaga

Serves 2

  • 1 cup frozen raspberries
  • 3 nectarines, pitted and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons extra-good ouzo
  • 3/4 cups lemon water-- water with a heaping teaspoon of fresh lemon juice added
  • 2 sprigs lemongrass
  1. For this drink the raspberries serve as your ice cubes, so it workes better if they are frozen.
  2. Whirr the lemon water, frozen raspberries and chopped nectarines in a blender.
  3. Pour a tablespoon of ouzo into each tumbler, pour frozen raspberry slush over it, serve with sprig of lemongrass.

Sometimes I feel like I need to walk around with a sign that says “Anise-Lovers Unite!” Instead I’ll just walk around with one of these sippers and raise my glass to anyone who shares the love. Beautiful drink.

Oh, this looks like a keeper! I see myself sipping this in my backyard in the sun...soon. We have arak, would this be a good sub for ouzo? Happy to get some ouzo, too. :)

I really look forward to your recipe, I have some lavender (planning on doing Boulangere's panna cotta) I want to try your dry rub on the pork. I do hope you have time to post
