Also question is, is Pastis an aperitif or a digestif?
Pastis Aperitif and a Proper Digestif. Pastis is an anise liqueur used to make a wonderful aperitif. You can buy it online from Ricard or Pernod. Typically you mix a suitable mild aperitif with one part Pastis and 4 or 5 parts of water.
Likewise, people ask, is Pastis and Pernod the same thing?
Pernod and Pastis are both anise-flavored alcoholic beverages from France that took the place of absinthe when it was banned in 1915. Although the licorice-flavored drinks are similar in taste to absinthe, Pernod and Pastis do not contain the herb wormwood that was absinthe's “active ingredient”.
The classic way to drink pastis is to add five to seven parts of very fresh water to one part of pastis in a lengthened or balloon glass. The amount of water depends on your own taste; the more water you add the more refreshing it will be.
