favourite things: antésite

I have decided to document all my favourite things in France and here is my first installment. Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you antésite (on-tay-zeet).

This is for licorice lovers only! It's concentrated licorice that makes a refreshing drink when you add just a few drops to water. The resulting drink is almost like a Pastis, minus the alcohol, and it contains no sugar. Being a Dutch girl with deep licorice roots, I am a big fan of this invention! It gives tap water a little extra somethin' somethin'.


  1. My Dutch roots fail me big time when it comes to licorice - never have I understood the thrill of dropjes (especially the dubbel zout!!) Give me good old lemon water any day.
    I look forward to more of your favorite things :-)

  2. i wonder if there is anyway to get Antesite in the USA!! sounds wonderful.

  3. Kimberly: I totally understand the thing with licorice. I think it's something you love or something you can't stand and there is really no middle ground.
    Phoebe: It's got to exist somewhere!
