About this deal

Simply add one to three coffee beans to a shot of sambuca and set it alight. Let the flame gently roast the coffee bean and caramelised it with the sambuca’s sugars. Afterwards, simply sip it an enjoy. If you catch a coffee bean, bite into it for some additional flavour. Sambuca was first produced for commercial purposes in Italy in 1851 by Luigi Manzi. He suggested that it was an excellent Anisette that was great for the stomach after a meal. He also claimed that he named the drink after the Sambuchelli watermen, who worked between Ischia Island and Naples. A LARGE single measure of sambuca (35ml) has 1.4 units of alcohol — so 30 shots will be 42 units, enough to seriously intoxicate and endanger health. The speed at which it is downed also matters. As a rule of thumb, an adult human body clears about one unit an hour, so 42 is a dangerously large dose in one session. 4. What does sambuca taste like? First, the name Sambuca is believed to be a derivative of the Latin word Elderberry. But, even though Sambuca contains elderberry in some recipes, it is not among the primary ingredients. According to others, Sambuca was derived from the word Zammut , an Arabic drink with an anise flavor. The Zammut came into Italy through the port of Civitavecchia, which some people believe is the origin of Sambuca. This theory seems to be a more accurate explanation of the name’s source.

Sambuca Manzi was well-liked locally but took almost a century to make an international breakthrough. The breakthrough was not achieved until 1945 when Angelo Molinari began producing his own Sambuca drink for the global market. It was this drink that launched Sambuca’s international reputation. A popular take on the classic Flaming Sambuca, the Lamborghini consists of the following ingredients in equal measures: In some instances, you can use green anise. You can also include other botanicals like Elderflower, Fennel, and Licorice. Once you have your preferred ingredients ready, follow the process below: Add both the sambuca and Grand Marnier into a warm, large espresso cup and swirl it until it’s mixed and evenly coating the inside. Top it up with the coffee and gently stir it. Simply add a 5 ml (⅙ Oz) of sambuca to an espresso cup and swirl it around so it leaves an even coating of spirit on the inside. Afterwards, just pour in the 45 ml (1.5 Oz) of coffee straight from the espresso machine.

You can make your own sambuca drink from a pure and neutral base alcohol distillate sourced from grain or molasses. The main ingredients you must have include alcohol, star anise, and sugar. Honestly, we’re not convinced and it just sounds like a messy recipe for a fire hazard! However, we’d love to hear your thoughts about this one in the comments! What Next?

Simply shake all the ingredients with ice and then strain it into a highball or Collins glass pre-filled with crushed ice. You can then garnish it with half of a passion fruit. Thoroughly squeeze the lemon into a mixing glass, add the sambuca, and stir the ingredients. Pour into a Highball or Collins glass pre-filled with ice and top up with the water to taste. If it’s a little sour, you can add sugar but this is best done beforehand so it has fully dissolved. Sambuca is a colourless liqueur made from anise and has its origin in Italy. The liqueur contains distillates of green anise and star anise. Sambuca has high sugar content (350 g/litre) and an alcohol content of 38 percent by volume. Popular as a digestif, Sambuca is preferably enjoyed “con la mosca – with fly”! 2. Can you drink sambuca straight? After the mixture has settled, filter it at room temperature. Avoid chill-filtering because it results in the louche effect (when you add water to your sambuca it forms a cloudy oil-in-water emulsion; this is what is usually referred to as the louche effect.) and removes the critical oils. Use a mixing glass with ice to combine the bourbon, sambuca, and bitters. Stir until cold and then strain into a tumbler over broken ice. You can then use lemon peel as garnish.

Make me a cocktail

Heat demineralized water to about 70 degrees Celsius, and then mix it with sugar to make syrup. (Sambuca usually contains a considerable amount of sugar. It is recommended to use 350 grams per liter.) You’ve probably realised that there’s a theme here with all these coffee references! After all, it’s one of the most famous pairings with sambuca. Simply combine 30 ml (1 Oz) of sambuca with 15 ml (½ Oz) of coffee liqueur.
