RECIPES. RAKOMELO. Induce euphoria. Raises libido and cures sore throats and coughs.


Rakomelo from Amorgos is the mixing of Cretan raki with honey and other spices. Since ancient times, the inhabitants of Amorgos and small Cyclades were producing a traditional drink to treat their guests and guests at the weddings of their children. The drink is named "Raki Cooked" or "honey." This beverage also is the official treat of visiting the monastery of Panagia Chozoviotissas Amorgos. Consist of grape spirit, honey and herbs without any preservative. Rakomelo is the ideal drink after causing euphoria and mood, boosts libido and is suitable after dinner as a digestive function as a result of honey and herbs available. Served warm, at room temperature and cold.


1. coffee pot
2. cinnamon
3. 4 to 5 cloves
4. Cretan raki (raki not / raki aniseed or other aromatics)
5. honey
Raki warmed over low heat and careful not to boil because danger of catching on fire! From the beginning we have put so much raki glasses you want to make little cinnamon.
Add the cloves. Put as many as the people who will drink to have one of each of the glass below. No more though because this bitter .....

Once the warm up we put honey a teaspoon per cup.

Shuffling and just started making a lot of noise to remove and serve.
Be careful because there is a risk of fire.
Someone told me that it is the drink of cold. Eventually they built the village in winter fir forest and changed his mind. If not for circulation in summer.
