It's still as tropical as ever though, including in its looks.

FAQ's

INGREDIENT_SPECIFICS

What gives the Ouzo Dream its distinct aniseed flavor?

The distinct aniseed flavor in the Ouzo Dream cocktail comes from the Aniseed liqueur, which is a key ingredient alongside Coconut rum, Banana liqueur, Lemon-Lime soda, and a dash of Blue Curaçao.

PREPARATION_TECHNIQUES

Why is the Ouzo Dream shaken and not stirred?

The Ouzo Dream is shaken, not stirred, to properly mix the denser ingredients like Coconut rum, Banana, and Aniseed liqueur with the lighter Lemon-Lime soda, ensuring a uniform taste and texture while also chilling the drink more effectively than stirring.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

What is the best way to serve an Ouzo Dream?

The Ouzo Dream is best served cold in a Highball glass, topped up with Lemon-Lime soda and a dash of Blue Curaçao for a visually appealing and refreshing cocktail experience.

ALCOHOL_CONTENT_COMPARISON

How does the alcohol content of Ouzo Dream compare to a typical cocktail?

With an alcohol content of 9.5%, the Ouzo Dream is slightly lower in alcohol compared to many traditional cocktails, which usually range from 10% to 25% alcohol by volume, making it a moderately strong choice.

CUSTOMIZATION_IDEAS

Can I make a non-alcoholic version of Ouzo Dream, and if so, how?

Yes, you can make a non-alcoholic version of Ouzo Dream by substituting Coconut rum, Banana liqueur, and Aniseed liqueur with non-alcoholic alternatives such as coconut water, banana syrup, and a non-alcoholic anise-flavored syrup. Top up with Lemon-Lime soda and a dash of non-alcoholic Blue Curaçao syrup.
