If a cocktail is what you are going for, why not try one with local ingredients while enjoying the coastal nightlife?

After your dinner, have a little Mastika – a sweet, sticky liquor seasoned with mastic, a resin gathered from the mastic tree native to the island of Chios (and the origin of chewing gum).
For an after dinner drink, go with Metaxa (‘7-star’ if you’re a snob, ‘5-star’ for the rest of us) which is a sweet Greek brandy.
