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.

I love this app

Super practical, informative, easy to use, even inspiring for lovers of cocktails or just those curious to try a few recipes over time and keep an inventory of favorite recipes handy. Updated fairly judiciously, thankfully, so it isn’t cluttered up with unproven concoctions resulting in an overwhelmingly-sized library with too many ridiculous or middling cocktails. Attractive, welcoming, well-designed UI.
