A liquor originating in Greece flavoured with the anise seed or black licorice flavour.
Often confused or associated with sambuca which is altogether sweeter and more syrupy.

Ouzo is the best choice for playing the everything drinking game.

Ouzo may be consumed chilled, room temperature, or warmed. Warmed, it is a soothing remedy for sore throats and protection against stumbling home on a cold wintry night and catching the death of cold.

To serve warm, fill a short wine glass with hot water, swirl, empty, fill with ouzo, include a shot glass of hot water for the glass to rest leaning over to keep warm.

You may also pour hot water in with the drink, which --oo, ah--clouds the drink like pernod.

Warm ouzo may also be consumed in high quantities, each glass thrown over your head against the wall while you curse or toast the world.
