As you know, tomorrow is my Italian Pot Luck Birthday Party. I've decided on my dish and have been searching for an after dinner drink. It is tradition for us to serve an after dinner drink at our potlucks. Of course this one had to be Italian! I learned last night from my dad about Sambuca with Flies or Sambuca con mosca. It is Sambuca liqueur with toasted coffee beans dropped into it. Traditionally it has three beans meaning: health, happiness and prosperity. Great things to toast to huh? You can also chew the beans to increase the flavor of the Sambuca. I like that this drink is unique and has tradition. Perfetto!
Hope everyone enjoys the weekend!
