Come into a small tavern and order ouzo - anisette beverage, which you should drink with fried octopus.
Ouzo is a mixture of ethyl alcohol and various herbs, the main ingredient is anise. Ouzo can only be made in Greece, so this drink is considered to be national.
You can buy Ouzo in the supermarket (you should pay attention to small-carafes bottle that look like souvenirs). But you should try the best ouzo in ouzerie - a small tavern where anisette served with snacks.
You should drink ouzo with ice cubes and the best snack to it is grilled octopus.
