The Joy of Pastis

One of my favorite things to do is drink a pastis every afternoon. Sitting outside, watching the sunset, laughing with friends and enjoying the small, meaningful moments in life.

Ingredients:

2 ounces pastis
Pitcher cold water
Ice cubes

Fill a glass pitcher or jug with very cold water. Pour a little pastis into an old-fashioned glass. Dilute the pastis with water — the usual ratio is five parts water to one part pastis. Start with equal parts water and pastis, sip the drink and add more water to suit your taste. If you’d like, add an ice cube after diluting with water.
