Sambuca is a traditional and famous Italian liqueur loved and enjoyed everywhere, whether served at the end of the meal on its own, either very cold or with some ice cubes, or added to the coffee, to make the famous “caffe corretto”. The legend says that Sambuca was served with three coffee beans in the glass - health, happiness and prosperity -
