There are three simple yet important steps to the arak sensation. First, in a fresh glass pour in the clean white spirit. Then add twice as much water. Finally some cubes of ice. Admire for a moment the transformation into an aromatic cloudy white creation - and taste. If you are drinking arak as an aperitif we recommend diluting the spirit by as much as six parts water to one of arak.
