How to make Thievery’s Arak the House Cocktail

Arak – a traditional Eastern Mediterranean and Middle Eastern spirit and favourite at Thievery. Made from grapes and aniseed it is as delicious straight as it is in a cocktail. With a distinct aniseed flavour it is guaranteed to be a talking point when served.

It is the perfect mix of strong sharp aroma meets a refreshing subtle sweetness from the liquorice and that how-interesting-but-can’t-figure-it-out ingredient. A great conversation starter and oh did we mention, it is absolutely delicious!

30ml Creme de Griotte

Half squeezed lime

6-8 mint leaves

2 dashes Plum Bitters
