I just cant handle the flavor. Its so specific. When I used to bartend just smell of it would made me gag. But because of specific anise flavor its not a drink for everyone. Give it a try if you're into licorice.
I love sambuca as it tastes like liquorice and makes a great shot all on its own!!
Sambuca is an Italian anise-flavored, usually colorless, liqueur. Its most common variety is often referred to as white sambuca to differentiate it from other varieties that are deep blue in color (black sambuca) or bright red (red sambuca).Sambuca is flavored with essential oils obtained from anise, star anise, liquorice and other spices. It also contains elderflowers The oils are added to pure alcohol, a concentrated solution of sugar, and other flavoring. It is commonly bottled at 42% alcohol by volume.
This is an awesome shot, if mixed with the proper ingredients. Of course everyone's tastes are unique, this is the recipe I always use when drinking this product.
