Mussaka Cocktail

By

Glass Guide- Old-fashioned Glass

Ouzo and Drambuie pair up for the low mixed drink called the Mussaka Cocktail. Here we have the potent power of anise-based ouzo with the smooth, rich and malty Scotch-based Drambuie. The finishing touch of a splash of cola, smooths everything out but leaves the liqueurs' undertones to savor. Great for a refreshing lowball, I prefer the flavor of Pepsi here because Coke can be too dominating.
