Oh checker, may I join you on that boozy walkabout? Thanks for the comment and the lovely thought!

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. :)
