γεια σας

I am apparently way behind the curve on mastic. It is happening, as groovy as last year's hygge.

Mastic is the resin of a small, dome-shaped Mediterranean evergreen tree - it was prized as a pre-cursor of chewing gum. It is used to flavour various alcoholic drinks. The current buzz comes from the Greek Island of Chios - and there are two main products, an Ouzo-like drink called Mastika, and a brandy liqueur called Mastiha. Both go cloudy over ice, and you can make cocktails. Read much more in the May edition of Vogue.

Whatever next ? Retsina in Sam Smith pubs ?
