Another way to enjoy apricots is with Greece’s national drink, Ouzo. It’s made from a combination of pressed herbs, grapes, berries, and aniseed, licorice, mint, wintergreen, fennel and hazelnut. Ouzo is served as an aperitif. It’s an excellent no cook options.
Pairing Ouzo with food: grapes leaves, feta or graviera cheese (Greek cheeses), pita wedges, nuts, olives and dried apricots (which is also known to ease joint pain). Ouzo is also paired with dishes like, baked or fried potatoes, fried fish, grilled seafood, cheese pies, and souvlaki.
