“Be careful when you drink ouzo – it’s very strong” Greeks sometimes warn their non-Greek counterparts ready to take their first sip.

In reality, however, ouzo  is no stronger – proof-wise – than the average bourbon, tequila, or vodka.  But just as those vary in potency, so does ouzo.

Take Boutari, for instance, which is produced in Naoussa, in Northern Greece. It is not the most flavorful or complex of all the ouza, but at 90-proof, it packs a punch and has enough strong, solid texture and flavoring to fare well against the competition.

The anise holds up well to its shocking confrontation with ice. Of course, as all ouza do, it turns milky. Thankfully, though, not too chalky.

As this ouzo is more than 10 percent more powerful than its average counterpart, it will also go to your head much quicker. Drink carefully – and with plenty of water as a chaser.
