Just a couple of shots of tequila and I'm good.  I don't want to hallucinate.  Bad dreams!!

It can be, but I think its an acquired taste, plus different people appreciate different flavours. I never really thought it tasted bitter, but then at the same time I don't like the taste of Guinness.

Licorice... close, but not quite the same. I'm trying to think of something else that has a strong aniseed flavour, and failing  :| Over here, we have (perhaps you'd call them suckers?) "aniseed balls"; its a stronger version of that taste.

there's a company that puts out old fashioned candy, and one of them is aniseed, i've never been big on black licorice...occasionally i'll get a nib or mix...but not often.

it's a date!

that's about the only way i can deal with tequila.  *shudders*

i used to be able to stomach hard liquor, but now i've become a lightweight...a few copper camels and a white russian or two and i'm all sorts of, tipsy.
