Sambuca is a traditional and famous Italian liqueur loved and enjoyed all over the world, whether served at the end of the meal on its own, very cold or with some ice cubes, or added to the espresso to make the famous “caffe corretto”.
This Sambuca is made with only four ingredients as the original recipes says (anise stars, neutral spirit, sugar and pure water, no artificial flavoring) and has an alcohol content of 40%. Cheaper and commercial versions tend to have a lower alcohol content and use artificial flavourings and are often too sweet due to sugar being used to cover the lack of flavour.
In the last few years, due to the growth of the cocktails’ trend, and the quest for new ingredients, Sambuca has become a very hot and versatile ingredient as well as featuring in many Italian recipes, from desserts, the famous tiramisu, to main courses, for ideas visit our recipes
