Sambuca di Trevi Sambuca
For many years, people within and outside Italy have been savoring Sambuca di Trevi - Italy's precious Sambuca. Full-flavored with notes of anise and licorice that carry through a richly elegant texture, it is delicious alone, with espresso, or of course, with the traditional three toasted coffee beans in an after dinner snifter. Sambuca is often used rather than sugar to flavor espresso coffee. A traditional Italian preparation is sambuca con mosca (literally, "with flies"); sambuca served with three coffee beans representing health, wealth, and happiness (or luck), dropped into the drink.
