Anybody here know why ouzo turns white when you put ice in it?
"When mixing Ouzo with water it
will turn whitish and opaque. The reason is that the anise oil
dissolves and becomes invisible when mixed with a conventional alcohol
content, but as soon as the alcohol content is reduced, the essential
oils transform into white crystals, which you cannot see through."
