This Italian liqueur is made from high quality herbs from different countries throughout the world. Italian, youthful, confident, outrageous, stylish, genuine, flamboyant, risqué, fun, life of the party. The name Sambuca is derived from the botanical name for elderberry, Sambucus Nigra. Sambuca is an anise-flavoured liqueur, produced by the infusion of witch elder bush and licorice, sweetened with sugar and enhanced with a secret combination of herbs and spices. Its most common variety is often referred to as white sambuca in order to differentiate it from derivative spirits that are deep blue in colour (known as black sambuca) or bright red (red sambuca).

Sambuca is often used rather than sugar to sweeten espresso coffee. A traditional Italian preparation is sambuca con mosca (literally 'with flies'); sambuca served with three coffee beans representing health, wealth, and happiness, dropped into the drink.

A flaming sambuca is typically made by lighting the drink in a shot glass and allowing it to burn. The flame is then extinguished and the Sambuca is quickly drunk whilst still warm.
