Sambuca is the famous Italian liqueur that everyone loves, made with just four ingredients, anise stars, neutral spirit, sugar and pure water and the Morelli’s Sambuca follows an old recipe passed down from generation to generation at the distillery in Tuscany, near Pisa. Their Sambuca uses only quality ingredients without any artificial flavour with an alcohol content of 40%, many of the commercial and cheaper sambuca have a much lower alcohol content and include among their ingredients, industrial flavourings.
Sambuca is normally served at the end of the meal and the legend says that it was served with three coffee beans in the glass representing health, happiness and prosperity and then set on fire, but by doing so, the alcohol is burned, and Sambuca becomes a non alcoholic drink.
Legend aside, in reality, Sambuca is drunk on its own, either very cold or with some ice cubes after the coffee or added to the coffee, so called “caffe corretto”.
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 in cocktails. Sambuca also feature in many Italian food recipes, from desserts to main courses, for suggestions visit our recipe
