ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATION : Mastic submarine is a typical Greek sweet treat (named in Greek υποβρύχιο μαστίχα). Made from mastic resin (from the Aegean island of Chios), water and sugar (sometimes with lemon juice, glucose, and so on… depending of the recipe), and it also exists with different flavors (vanilla, rose, pistachio and more). It is served in a full spoon dropped in an ice-cold water glass. It is meant to be licked as a lollipop directly by the spoon. It was the favorite treat in Constantinople Patriarchate by hot summer nights 🌛
