Pastis

Pastis is one of the most famous drinks that many associate with Marseille. For those not in the know, Pastis a creamy coloured liqueur which, served straight is usually around 40% alcohol. Pastis has an aniseed flavour, and is often served diluted with water, or mixed with syrup flavourings such as orgeat (Mauresque), mint (Perroquet) or strawberry (Rourou).

I have to admit, I wasn’t immediately won over by the taste last year. Pastis is often served as an aparatif, and I know I need to grow to love it before next summer- in order for me to be fully accepted as a true Marseilles (impersonator!)
