Sambuca is one of my favorite liqueur. First – I like sweet anise flavor and taste of it. Second I like very much to ignite sambuca on saturday night and go to the club. I use in practice my own method of flaming sambuca which is so similar to traditional con mosca.
Flaming Sambuca. Step 1. Equipment.
Prepare some equipment, which you can see on foto. You need so big and thick-walled snifter, old-fashioned or rocks glass, jigger, bar-spoon, napkin, straw, matches.
Flaming Sambuca. Step 2.
Put 3/4 – 1 oz (20 – 30 ml) of sambuca in the snifter and add 1 dash of coffee liqueur in old-fashioned glass (I use Kahlua). If you want to drink flaming sambuca in traditional con mosca way, omit the coffee liqueur and put three coffee beans (which symbolise health, wealth and good luck) into a snifter. Use good sambuca for good results.
Flaming Sambuca. Step 3. Flame the night.
Rotate snifter some times and set on the fire. Continue to rotate snifter. Please operate VERY carefully.
Flaming Sambuca. Step 4. Fire show.
Pour the flame in old-fashioned glass.
I think it is beautiful.
Flaming Sambuca. Step 5. Blow out.
Extinguish a fire in this way:
Flaming Sambuca. Step 5. Drinking of flamed sambuca.
Place snifter over napkin with a straw in pictured way:
Drink a hot sambuca (warning! very, very hot sambuca may cause of burn! sip responsibly) and inhalate from a snifter. Enjoy!
