any shop or bazar: "Mastika!!!" Republic of Macedonia Shopping Tip by picek
Republic of Macedonia Shopping: 12 reviews and 11 photos
In local shops you will get bottle of mastika - liquor similar to Greek Ouzo yet better and milder. The most famous is Strumnicka mastika which is also sold abroad in Macedonian shops. In bazar you can get home made and much cheaper one - produces will give you a shot to try.
There's one very famous song on Mastika which reveals full temperament of macedonian men. It's sung by Muharem Serbezovski. Cover was done laters by Culture Shock. I can only recommend you to try both music and liquors when you are in Macedonia.
What to buy: Mastika is local hard drink, made of anis. Strumnicka mastika is the most famuous one. But home made ones are equally good either and you can get them at local markets. Before you buy one, you can taste it and see if it's good.
What to pay: 1 liter about 7 Euro.
