Summer Cocktails- Ouzotini & Ouzini

Ouzo served with mezedes and a cool glass of water is a classic way to enjoy the Greek national spirit. Mixing ouzo into cocktails adds the iconic flavor of anise to your drinks. The ouziotini is a variation on the martini while the ouzini was developed in Cyprus. Try the following refreshing recipes at your next party or backyard barbecue.

Ouzotini

  • 1 ounce peach schnapps
  • 1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 4-5 mint leaves, chopped
  • Ice

Chill martini glasses in the refrigerator. When ready to serve, rub the squeezed out lime on the rim of the martini glass and dip in sugar. Set the glasses aside. Add the ouzo, vodka, Schnapps, lime juice, mint leaves and ice to a cocktail shaker. Shake and strain into a sugar-rimmed martini glass. Garnish with a sprig of mint and enjoy responsibly.
