Gantous & Abou Raad Arak
Arak is liquor distilled from grapes and flavored with Anis Seeds.
It is the traditional alcoholic beverage in Lebanon, Iraq, Syria, Jordan, and Israel.
The Arak I tasted last night is from Lebanon and clocked in at 100 proof.
It tasted like a less viscous, more potent sambuca.
Like Sambuca, Arak is also compared to Ouzo, Pastis & Absinthe.
