Luxardo Sambuca – the authentic Italian after-dinner liqueur. The Luxardo family have been making their world famous liqueurs since 1821. Their Sambuca is an infusion of green Sicilian aniseed, plump Paduan elderberries and the purest grain alcohol. Luxardo Sambuca is rounded and smoothed by six months gentle maturation in Finnish wood vats. You should serve Sambuca in a liqueur glass with three roasted coffee beans floating on top. Set it ablaze to provide the ideal conclusion to dinner in true flamboyant Italian style. Extinguish the flame and sip the warmed drink with pleasure. Legend has it that three coffee beans are the symbol for romance.
