These liqueurs are all flavored with anise (or star anise, a close relative). Anise liqueurs come in a variety of sweetness and alcohol levels, but they’re all united by the love-it-or-hate-it flavor of black licorice.
Here’s a neat factoid: adding ice or water to an anise liqueur produces a cloudy appearance known as the “ouzo effect.”
