I was introduced to Sambuca a few weekends ago whilst staying with friends in Germany. Tatjana, you and your cocktail cabinet have hidden talent ! This is excellent, and I can't believe it's not already posted here. You are suposed to use 3 coffee beans, Tatjana uses 5 in hers.. personally 3 will do me just fine... you choose. She said most cheaper sambucas won't flambe but this one ( the Molinari brand) will becuase it's got the right combination of alchol and sugar content. Tatjana, I could be hooked on this!
