I not only used strong black coffee but reinforced it by adding a bit of espresso granules. Light and delicious, the sambuca was an added layer we thoroughly enjoyed. Made for the Comfort Cafe, a tag game.

This is a very light dessert, and the flavor of sambuca dominates (which is fine with me...I love sambuca). This is a great ending for a heavy meal! Next time I make it, I will probably use some espresso powder, because I couldn't really taste the coffee in this. Regardless, it was tasty. Note: this made 8 fairly large servings for me. Thanks for sharing!
