Pastis Bastidon

Pastis, also called “French milk” due to its milky color after being diluted with water, is an anise based liquor drink produced in France. Pastis historical origins are related to another drink that has been outlawed over the years and has been ordered by Pastis to replace it. In the 19th century it was absinthe that dominated the Bohemians with fans like Picasso, Van Gogh and others. The drink, which caused hallucinations and severe addiction to its components, was finally removed from the law and replaced by Pastis, which has a similar flavor but no addictive effects.
