licorice juice

A mention has to be made of this traditional drink, but only a short one. Licorice juice vendors are supposedly out in full force in the summers, their iced drink in high demand on meltingly sunny days, but as we were visiting the area where they are best known – the southeast – in late spring, there were only a few out in the downtown and market areas we were visiting. One drink was enough for us, tasting more like licorice that almost any piece of licorice either of us had ever eaten (except for the salted licorice I had once long ago). In an ironic twist of tongue-fate, though I didn’t enjoy the drink all that much – it was just too much licorice taste, and I like licorice! – I quite enjoyed the aftertaste, a cooling sensation that reminded one of mint. Well, everything deserves a try…
