Yes, there are certainly many and varied Venezuelan drinks that you cannot stop trying if you decide to visit Venezuela, but I am going to recommend a very special one for us, young and old Venezuelans, such as Anís Cartujo.
What is Anís Cartujo?
It is a sweet liquor whose price is more accessible than rum or beer. It is made with 30 gl alcohol, natural essence of anise and sugar. It is taken pure or dry, there is also a version bottled with coconut milk.
You cannot drink water after drinking anise, because you will lose your state of sobriety and the "mouse" (that's what we call the hangover the next day, drunkenness) will have no equal.
Anís has been used since Ancient Greece and it is originally from Eastern Europe, specifically the Middle East (Egypt, Greece and Turkey.) Then its cultivation was expanded to different regions of the world, such as Spain, Germany, Chile, Mexico China and India. Since Spain is the country where experts say, the best variety of star anise in the world is produced.
Commonly we see the star-shaped anise already dry, but, the truth is that its flowers are a beautiful white color. Then it is allowed to dry and it is given a light tap so that it can detach its fruit.
Yes, it is the answer, as it helps in respiratory health to open the bronchial tubes and reduce headaches. In cases of asthmatic people, it helps to reduce coughs and sore throats..
Finally, an aniseed candy is liked even by the smallest of the house. It also helps to reduce bad breath (halitosis), recommended to avoid those moments of very close encounters with the people we love.By the way, do not forget that you still have to maintain social distance.
