Anise liqueur

Bottle of anise liqueur

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.”

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have, and makes tailored recommendations about what to buy next. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on your liquor collection.

clean, straightforward app

This is a clean, straightforward app that allows you quick access to find drinks to make based on ingredients that you have. I love it because the UI is intuitive and the drink selections are organized into subcategories. If you're looking to make your parties better or just learn how to make a new aperitif/nightcap, this app is for you.
