A strong aniseed liquor popular in Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Palestine and Israel. Arak is traditionally cut two-thirds with water and served at meals, although it is also very tasty (and intoxicating) without food.
Arak is similar to the Greek ouzo and Turkish raki.
Sami drained five glasses of arak last night and woke up with an incredible headache the morning after.
