Pastis is normally diluted with water before drinking (generally 5 volumes of water for 1 volume of pastis). The resulting decrease in alcohol percentage causes some of the constituents to become insoluble, which changes the liqueur's appearance from dark transparent yellow to milky soft yellow. The drink is consumed cold, with ice, and is considered a refreshment for hot days. Ice cubes can be added after the water to avoid crystallization of the anethol in the pastis. However, many pastis drinkers refuse to add ice, preferring to drink the beverage with cool, spring water.

Pastis/ Delray Beach: SouthFlorida.com (771 words)
Pastis, named after the popular anise-flavored aperitif of the region, is a great place to begin an exploration of what the French love to call their "cuisine of the sun."
Like many of the main courses at Pastis, the plate arrives oven-hot, and that has a downside with this dish because the fish keeps cooking; by the time I dug down to it, it was a bit overcooked.
The best news about the Pastis menu, and one of the reasons the restaurant is often full, even on weeknights, is that nearly all the appetizers and most of the main courses are available, with the restaurant's wonderful, homemade desserts and coffee, for a package price of just $24.50.
