Rakomelo – The Greek Cocktail Small Box Set
The perfect gift or wedding favor idea!
Rakomelo is an alcoholic drink made from raki and honey, with the addition of spices such as cinnamon, cloves, and other local herbs. The roots of rakomelo trace back to either the Peloponnesian in the 12th century or, according to other historical sources, to Crete and Amorgos. Today, rakomelo is widely manufactured in Crete and on other Aegean islands. It is mainly consumed in the winter as a hot drink, while in the summer it can be enjoyed chilled as a shot.
