Q. Why do anisette-based drinks, such as Pernod or Sambucca, turn white when water is added?
A. Anisette-based drinks rely on aromatic compounds called terpenes for their flavour. These terpenes are soluble in alcohol, but not water. The 40% or so alcohol in the drink is enough to keep the terpenes dissolved, but mixing with water forces them out of the solution to give a milky looking suspension.
