    Had a Black Mojito in Italy..amazing. Can’t find Opal Nera, the brand used, but I think this is the same thing. Now, all I need is the recipe….anyone ever have one and know how to make it?

    If you like licorice, you'll like Sambuca, though I would recommend the clear, because in the past friends and I had serious stomach pain after drinking the dark ones.

    There aint no such thing as bad Sambuca. I recommend equal portions of good vodka and Sambuca in a shaker with ice and strained into a cocktail glass. I have yclept this drink a Moscow Omerta. You can adjust the amounts of each ingredients to taste. Enjoy.

    Worst experience .... it took 90 minutes when the estimate was 35, and an hour from when it left the store which is 10 minutes away.

Romana Sambuca is a rock star; it’s the most popular Sambuca in all of the United States. It is imported straight from Italy and produced with a tried-and-tested infusion of licorice, elder bush, herbs, spices, and sugar. This Italian liqueur is a flavorful and unique beverage with a 42% alcohol by volume (ABV) rating and a bold but tastefully sweetened flavor of anise. With a smooth finish and a spicy, aromatic flavor and aroma, Romana Sambuca is often served as a digestif after meals.
Yes, Romana Sambuca is gluten-free, as are most other sambucas. The ingredients that go into sambuca include spices, anise, licorice, and elderflowers, delivering a beverage that is unique and flavorful — as you would expect from a wildly popular liqueur imported straight from Italy. This liqueur is a good choice for those with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity, offering a flavor you won’t forget and a finish as smooth as the bottle.
A shot of Black Romana Sambuca contains 155 calories — the math being that 1 oz. contains 100 calories, so a 1.5-oz. shot is pretty easy to calculate. What do you get for that calorie cost? Well, you get an unforgettable Italian liqueur with a mélange of spices and herbs and a sweet, bold flavor complemented by a delicious alcohol warmth. The smooth finish of Romana Sambuca is part of the reason it’s so popular in shot form.
Romana Sambuca is a great gift for fans of interesting liqueurs, Italian spirits, and herbal, spicy alcoholic beverages. Romana ticks all the boxes beautifully: Its ingredients create a spicy flavor that’s both complex and accessible, with the sweet flavor of anise tying everything together. Its smooth finish makes it great for drinking straight-up shots, while you can also add it to numerous cocktails for an herbal-heavy splash of flavor. In other words, this is the perfect, well-rounded gift for anyone who’s a fan of a good Italian digestif.
