Bottle of sambuca

Sambuca (Italian pronunciation: [samˈbuːka]) is an Italian anise-flavoured, usually colourless, liqueur. Its most common variety is often referred to as white sambuca to differentiate it from other varieties that are deep blue in colour (black sambuca) or bright red (red sambuca).[1] Like other anise-flavoured liqueurs, the ouzo effect is sometimes observed when combined with water.

Sambuca is flavoured with essential oils obtained from star anise, or less commonly, green anise. Other spices such as elderflowerliquorice and others may be included, but are not required as per the legal definition. It is bottled at a minimum of 38% alcohol by volume.[1][2]The oils are added to pure alcohol, a concentrated solution of sugar, and other flavouring.
