Ouzo... My new best friend

Lately things have been a little tense in my household. With good reason I suppose. My dear husband quit smoking 2 weeks ago. Granted, I am extremely proud of him for making this decision and sticking with it, but damn if it hasn't been hard. I have never been a smoker. Except when I drink... Heavily I might add. Even then it is menthol clove cigarettes, so they do not count. So I do not know what addiction is like. Apparently nicotine is one of the hardest habits to kick. I just wanted to kick him. So, because of all this nicotine withdrawal psychosis, I found a little something to help me cope. Ouzo. My new best friend. That stuff is better than any antidepressant I have ever had the pleasure of taking. Makes me all warm and giddy and smiley. I know this is the normal reaction to alcohol, but this is different. You just feel good. I highly recommend trying some immediately. The hubby hates the licorice taste but I love it. Oh and do not worry, I never ever drink and drive and actually do not drink as much as I let on so my kids are safe. Today was catastrophe day but I will write about that later, I am getting a bit woozy and I think the washer stopped. I must be pretty talented, blogging and washing clothes all while being slightly intoxicated. :)

Lori,
If you like Ouzo, try a few other countries versions.

France, its called Pastis.
Spain, its called Anis.

Anis is my personal favorite.

I don't know if you know this or not, but if you drink it on ice, it takes on a cloudy white color and it loses some of its bite. This tastes a lot better to me.

Also, if you like Ouzo, try to get your hands on some Absinthe...

I will be running out for that as soon as I can. For now I would settle for Vodka and seven! Anything!
