I am creating this beverage for the Seaside Brasserie's - Beach Movie Challenge. I chose Mama Mia and wanted a Greek inspired drink. This drink is a lovely surprise, sweet, yet very refreshing, the many flavors in ouzo blend well with the orange juice and cola. I couldn't find any, but if you can find blood oranges use them, it will give this sweet drink a little more acid. I would suggest shaking the drink until the ice cubes melt. The little bit of water really adds to the overall flavor of the finished cocktail.
