Sambuca is another famous Italian liqueur that everyone loves with the authentic recipe requiring only four ingredients anise stars, neutral spirit, sugar, and pure water. The Morelli’s Sambuca follows an old recipe passed down from generation to generation at the distillery in Tuscany, near Pisa and their Sambuca uses only quality ingredients without any artificial flavour with an alcohol content of 40%. Many of the commercial and cheaper sambuca has a much lower alcohol content and use industrial flavourings.
Sambuca is normally served at the end of the meal, the legend says that it was served with three coffee beans in the glass representing health, happiness, and prosperity, and then set on fire. Nowadays, legend aside, Sambuca is drunk on its own, either very cold or with some ice cubes after the coffee or added to the coffee, in Italy it is called “caffè 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 features in many Italian food recipes, from desserts to main courses.
If you love Sambuca, it doesn’t get any better than this, and it comes in a 1L bottle.
