When I got my new job, my dad took me out for dinner to celebrate. We went to Cafe Rouge so I thought it would be a great opportunity to catch up on a few French classics from the list. I started out with a glass of pastis, which is an aniseed liqueur which you drink with ice water (like ouzo). I remember that my parents always used to get it when we went on day trips to France when I was younger, and I’ve always loved it as I’m a huge fan of anything that is aniseed or liquorice flavoured. It was a lovely aperitif for the meal.
