Averna Sambuca


One of my favorite drinks is Averna and I was excited to learn that they expanded their line to include sambuca and limoni di sicilia. I haven't been able to try the limoni di sicilia just yet but the sambuca is great. Made with star anise it has a licorice flavor that is slightly sweet but not overpowering.

The lemon liquor is made with real Sicilian lemons (like the homemade limoncello we made a while back) instead of lemon flavoring like a lot of mass produced lemon liqueurs.
