Ricard is the world's best-selling aniseed-flavored spirit, and the top-selling spirit in France.
It’s made with star anise from China, licorice from the Middle East, and a blend of aromatic herbs from Provence.
Pastis is part of the anise family, along with spirits like Sambuca, ouzo and arak.
A pastis is typically mixed with five parts cold water to one part liqueur, which changes its appearance from clear to cloudy.
