    "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."
