Ouzo
My friend was telling me recently that if you drink ouzo that some of it crystallises on your stomach, meaning that when you next drink water the crystals dissolve and you get alcohol to your system again (and drunk again depending on how much you drank in the first place).

This sounds like something that could well be an urban myth to me. Anyone able to clear this one up for me (along with why it's true/bullshit)?

Best and worst of Ferdinand .....
Best
Ferdinand: We don't really say 'theist' in Alabama. Here, you're either a Christian, or you're from Afghanistan and we fucking hate you.
Worst
Ferdinand: Everyone from British is so, like, fucking retarded.

I have had Ouzo on occasion and while it's easy to drink too much of it and end up with a hangover, drinking water the next day most certainly doesn't make you drunk again. BTW the Turkish equivalent of Ouzo is Raki, and same thing with that.

Yeah, I call bullshit. Drinking Beverage

What, exactly, is supposed to crystallize?

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

RE: Ouzo
Probably that myth was born because Ouzo is a clear liquid, but if you add water it turns milky.
