Anise

Anise

Anise liqueurs have a predominately anise, also known as "liquorice," taste. It is commonly derived from aniseed, although it can also come from star anise, fennel, or liquorice, all of which have a similar taste, though none are related. Many anise flavoured liqueurs will turn a milky white when cold water is added. Anethole and other oils in these liqueurs are soluble in alcohol but not in water. When water is added the oils come out of solution and form tiny droplets that cloud the drink. Although ice-cold water is often used, it is not recommended to add ice to the drink first or to put anise liqueurs in the freezer, as anethole has a high freezing point, causing it to crystallise and form a skin on its surface.
