Rakomelo (Raki & Honey) Liquor Recipe

Published on 09.11.2015 under Mediterranean Recipes


Since the weather is getting colder and colder, what is better than a couple of shotglasses with warmed and freshly prepared rakomelo to enjoy with good company and an assortment of appetizers ? 


This recipe is the easiest possible, as you can imagine. The only prerequisite is: for top taste, you need to use top products!


Here are the INGREDIENTS: 


250ml of Greek Raki or Tsikoudia

4 tablespoons of Greek Raw Honey

1 cinnamon stick

2 cloves




Boil all ingredients for approximately one minute.Pour in a small glass jug. Serve it hot in shotglasses. 


Enjoy responsibly and since this is quite "heavy" for the head, do not forget to accompany with greek meze. 

My favourites appetizers for rakomelo are:


Yiam Grilled Manouri Cheese    

Rovies Olive Paste    

Th!nk Green Roast Peppers

Naturally Greek Kythera Rusks

Caramelized Onions&Mushrooms







Katsikaki (aka Baby Goat)
