Default How to make Ouzo

Well, actually this is the best I could find:

1/2 cup water
1/8 cup sugar
1/2 tsp chopped and dried angelica root
touch of mace
3 1/2 tsp anise extract
2 cups pure grain alcohol
1 cup water

Make a simple syrup with water and sugar. Add angelica root and mace. Allow to cool, then add alcohol, anise extract and water. Give it a good share. Age for 1 week and then strain into clean bottles. Allow an additional month for aging


I'm hoping someone reading this either has a recipe that they've tried or knows of a workable recipe.

Isn't ouzo distilled? I'm usually pretty leery of any hard liquor recipe that calls for grain alcohol to sidestep the distillation and aging process...

I'm pretty sure it is, like I said: this recipe was all I could find on Google, and it ain't much.

Did you check Wikipedia? It seems they have all the details you need. I know extracts are easy and they seem to be very popular but why use them when the real thing produces much better results?

Actually, that's the one place I didn't look. Thanks a bunch.
