Hey there, welcome back. I hope that the first of many of 2014’s new year’s celebrations is going well for you. Without further ado, let’s jump right into the topic: liquorice juice in Cairo, Egypt.
Damaging Detail: Probably because it cost one Egyptian pound, which at the time was, US$.14.
Upon first taste of the drink, it was rather nice. Somewhat bitter, unsweetened, refreshing (I can’t imagine a warm glass of the stuff), doesn’t pair well with anything except anguish, likely in an unwashed glass- I was temporarily emboldened. Things rapidly took a turn for the worse when the liquorice flavor arose. Even a carton of broccoli juice sounded less threatening.
To make matters worse, the shakshuka I ate, naturally served in a plastic bag, had a coin in it. Can’t wait to go back to Egypt~
Would you dare drink liquorice?
