Glasses of champagne with Greek ‘pontzi’, strong beverage made from berries and loads of honey usually coming from reiki honey

Pontzi

Having raki as its main ingredient, pontzi is a very strong beverage that can be savored in all of the Cycladic islands. It is a type of rakomelo, a raki made from berries and loads of honey usually coming from reiki honey of the islands. It is served hot but also cold.

In the prefecture of Arcadia there is a variant of pontzi, which is prepared by mixing tsipouro with petimezi or sugar. In northern Greece, it is made from tsipouro with honey or sugar as a companion during the cold days of winter.
