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 after the coffee, the legend says that it was served with three coffee beans in the glass - health, happiness and prosperity - or added to the coffee, the famous “caffe corretto”.
This Sambuca is made with four ingredients: anise stars, neutral spirit, sugar and pure water, as the original recipe suggests, and doesn’t use any artificial flavouring with an alcohol content of 40%. Many of the commercial and cheaper sambuca have a much lower alcohol content and use artificial flavourings, often very sweet due to the 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, Sambuca also feature in many Italian food recipes, from desserts to main courses, for ideas visit our authentic recipe
