Zorbatini Recipe

Make a Vodka Martini, hold the vermouth and use ouzo instead - then you have a Zorbatini.

Essentially, this is an anise-flavored martini that is simultaneously subtle in flavor and potent. The amount of ouzo (a Greek anisette liqueur) you choose is a matter of personal preference but this 1/4 oz is perfect for a gentle introduction to the flavor that is most associated with black licorice.
