The obvious typical Greek drink is Ouzo, each island tends to have its own wineries and local wines. Also most islands will also have there own brand of firewater, I know I had some once in Rhodes but can't remember what its called, I think it was something like 72% proof!! If you are a larger drinker there's Mythos or Amstel.

Deliberate faux-pas Babs ?? LOL !!
My favourite is chilled Lindos tap water sitting on abalcony overlooking the Pallas and main beaches.
And second favourite is a chilled bottle of retsina whilst having a light lunch at Scala
And for the evening can I recommend ouzo on the rocks topped up with water. Deliciously refreshing after a hard day roasting on Pallas beach
Oh blimey, yes Retsina, how could I forget that?
God, I blame it all on the hangover I'm still suffering from my birthday celebrations!!
We were given a fab liquor in Ceasers after a meal, I did write down the name but lost it. It smelt of leaves and was served over ice with a glace cherry. Does any one recognise the description ?
'My favourite is chilled Lindos tap water sitting on abalcony overlooking the Pallas and main beaches'.
Is it drinkable in Lindos ? I really can't remember if we drunk it or got bottled water when we were last there.
hi all my favorite drink is a lovley cold mythos or i love the frappe when i lived in cyprus thier was a liquire called Filfar it tastes like our cointreux but it is very warming as it goes down mmmmmlovley
28 days to go to a lovley cold mythos,my tickets came today so im very excited anyone else off the end of july?yammas Sandy
Retsina though not to everybody's taste is worth a try. If you're not keen you could try some of the island's wines (names to look for are Emery or Cair).
If you're a brandy fan then Metaxa is a lovely drink. It comes in various star ratings, the higher the star the smoother it is.
Metaxa:- 7 star neat, 5 star mixed (and for cooking - I've just used the dregs from last year's supply to make a creamy mushroom sauce - yum!), and 3 star to start the BBQ. :-)
Personal preference is Mythos in a nice iced glass straight from the freezer or an Ouzo over ice - roll on next week!!!
Paul - I've always drunk tap water in Lindos without any skitter problems. Bottled water is readily available though and not too expensive if you want to make sure.
