Ouzo - the anise-flavored aperitif Greek's enjoy before, during, and after a meal - is a cornerstone of the Greek culinary experience. Served with ice and a little water, it's a refreshing, stimulating accompaniment to plates of mezedes or appetizers. Many people claim that the best ouzo in Greece comes from Lesvos, so it's no surprise that the distilleries here are a major tourist draw. One of the best is the Barbayannis Ouzo Museum in Plomari, where guided tours walk you through the distilling process and ends with a tasting session. Admission is free.
