Celebrate National Licorice Day this April 12th with a sip of Molinari Sambuca

Celebrate National Licorice Day this April 12 with a glass of Molinari Sambuca Extra, the classic Italian digestivo. Introduced in the 40’s and gaining worldwide popularity during La Dolce Vita in the 60’s and 70’s, Molinari continues to be the best-selling – and some would argue, best-tasting – Sambuca in the world.

Molinari Sambuca offers imbibers a delicious licorice flavor thanks to the sweet, aromatic anise it’s created from. Traditionalists may enjoy neat or on the rocks, while others like to serve it “con la mosca,” or with three floating coffee beans which are meant to represent health, happiness, and prosperity. Those who enjoy a splash of liqueur in their coffee will thoroughly enjoy Molinari Caffè, a robust mix of coffee, Sambuca, and other ingredients.

Unlike many spirits marketed and consumed as night-life products, Molinari’s portfolio is enjoyed throughout the day and night.

Molinari Sambuca Extra
The top-selling spirit in Italy and the one that started it all, Molinari Sambuca Extra is anise-based, blended with wheat alcohol and sugar in a closely guarded, secret formula known only to one family member each generation. Utilizing only ingredients of the utmost quality, Molinari takes pride in the purity and smooth flavor. SRP: $24.99

Molinari Caffè
A unique blend of coffee and other ingredients gives Molinari Caffè a distinguished taste that pulls from the acclaimed heritage of Molinari Sambuca Extra while giving it a personality all its own. The product is 100% naturally colored – a mixed combination of Molinari Sambuca Extra and two different types of coffee: Robusta and Arabica. It is best enjoyed straight or on the rocks.
SRP: $24.99

Celebrate National Licorice Day this year with something a little different: Molinari Sambuca, the traditional and flavorful liqueur imported from Italy.

Sambuca con la mosca (literally, "Sambuca with fly")
Served neat with coffee beans floating on the surface
Superstition holds that it is bad luck to serve Sambuca with any more or less than three beans representing health, happiness, and prosperity or the Christian Trinity (Father, Son, and Holy Ghost), depending on one’s choice of symbolism.
