Cocktail Recipe: Mastiha for The Winter

a person preparing food on a table

Winter Mastichato

Mastiha is a liqueur seasoned with resin from the Mastic tree, native to the Mediterranean island of Chios. 

 Though generally considered a summer beverage, we add citrus and bitters to ours to adapt it to the winter season.  For a drier version use Skinos Mastiha, and for a sweeter rendition try Ya Mastiha.  Delicious as an aperitif or as a remedy to the winter blues.

2 oz Mastiha

1 slice lemon

1 slice lime

1 slice orange

2 dashes Angostura bitters

Muddle citrus with bitters.  Add ice and Mastiha, shake vigorously and serve in a rocks glass. Top with a splash of soda and enjoy!
