About Specialty Spirits from Lebanon
The most famous alcoholic spirit from Lebanon is arak, a colorless, anise-flavored beverage; this is similar to Raki from Turkey. It is high in alcohol, from 40-60% ABV and is traditionally served in a small glass, mixed with water; when served this way, it has a milky appearance. It is served with small appetizers known as mezza.
