National Liqueur Day is October 16th. Since Columbus Day also falls this week it’s fitting that my two most favorite liqueurs are both Italian.
Sambuca is anise-flavored and usually is a clear, syrupy liquid, although some varieties are blue. Those remind me of the vibrant blue color of the famous Blue Grotto on the Isle of Capri.
When Sambuca isn’t available almond-flavored Amaretto will do! From it’s mellow mahogany color to its delicious flavor, Amaretto is wonderful after a meal or as a nightcap.
What's your favorite liqueur and how do you prefer to have it served? Let us know, and enjoy National Liqueur Day with your favorite one.
