SAMBUCA di TREVI
The Eternal City's precious liqueur
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.
