are any of a number of liqueurs
flavored with aniseed
(though some varieties may instead use star anise
). While all are dominated by the characteristic anise flavor, they vary considerably in sweetness and in the amount and types of additional flavoring. Which drink is preferred varies largely by region, as most are tied closely to their place of origin.
