Some people in Greece drink it for breakfast, but it has 40 degrees alcohol and it gives a nice hangover

It's 40 to 45 % alcohol at least depending on the brand. It's strong, but there are other much stronger drinks in Greece!
It's very popular among the Greeks but also the tourists who like to get completely pissed and buy 'Ouzo power' T shirts
It contains licorice which gives it a nice aroma, but some people don't like it because of this.
Other countries have similar drinks, France-Pernod, Italy-Grappa, but the Ouzo has a very long tradition and there are many brands of Ouzo.
The best Ouzo is made in Mytilini, a Greek Island, many brands are made there.
The French have Pernod as an aperitif and have one glass before the meal, but the Greeks drinkl endless quantities of Ouzo, eating 'meze' (different kinds of fish, octapus, olives etc) at the same time. This is the secret for drinking large quantity, if you just drink a lot without eating you'll be in deep trouble next day
Here is a link I found about Ouzo, the text is in English:

http://www.lesvos.com/ouzo.html

Lesvos is the other (older) name for Mytilini Island. Actually this is where the word 'lesbian' comes from also as it was the island of Sapfo, who in ancient times was the queen of....
OK if we go into ancient Greek history this post will never end and I'm at work

Now is anybody going to find what bike it is?
