Any mixologists around? I've always had a theory that raki (Turkish anise liquor) would be good as a mix with something bitter like coffee or Campari. Anyone know any drinks? Anise liquor is tough to mix so this might be a real challenge.

@sixohsix IANAM, but I have been using a handful of anisettes as a replacement for campari in Negroni throughout the pandemic. And from there having fun with (base liquor + anise + sweet). Not going to win any awards for a Mezcal Pastis Porto unless I light an ugli rind above it and charge $20 (is it $25 now?), but unsurprisingly it hit my flavor notes well!

@sixohsix A friend served me coffee with anisette and it was quite good. This is an Italian version of what you suggest, but I can say from experience it definitely works. Sorry I don't have measurements.
