ouzo cherry twister

I love ouzo, and I'm always on the look-out for new ouzo drinks. It tastes a little like red licorice, so it's perhaps best reserved for those who adore (or at least like) the taste of licorice. If you use real cherry juice, this results in a bright red, sweet drink. So it would be a great cocktail to enjoy with your sweetheart on Valentine's Day.
