Refreshing! That is, in one word summed up the flavor of this recipe for a Greek cocktail: ouzo with lemon and a pinch of oregano. An awfully nice welcome cocktail for your Greek buffet!
This is the last recipe in the series Greek buffet. The ninth and final recipe starts with: the welcome cocktail. At a party belongs a special drink that perfectly match your buffet. A drink that completes the whole. A welcome drink immediately sets the spirit of the party.
Now of course you can serve the national Greek drink called ouzo. Not a bad choice, even very Greek, but you can spice up your cocktail a bit. Some lemon for extra flavor and a fresh sprig of oregano which you can use as a stirring rod.
Tomorrow I will summarize the buffet for you, including a timetable, to make sure that it you've got a great party without any stress.
- ouzo is strong stuff, use small liqueur glasses. You will see that that is more than enough.
- This cocktail is tasty when it is served cold, so put theouzo in the refrigerator to keep it cold.
- To vary you can use also use lime instead of lemon.
In the morning:
- put the ouzo in the refrigerator
- make fresh lemon juice
- cut the herbs from the garden and put them wrapped in a damp paper towel covered with a layer of plastic wrap in the refrigerator. That way they will stay fresh.
