I like the flavor of Sambuca and was thinking about bottling a couple of bottles of my blackberry with sambuca mix in for fortifing it.

Sounds like you might have had an experience with the "sambuca". I am kinda partial to the black sambuca but I was thinking about just using the nomal white sambuca for this.

Stopped by my local ABC store today on the way home and discovered that they dont carry any sambuca. So I will have to find another ABC store that does.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what is the best sambuca, or does no one here like it?

Sambuca isa Greek liquor that is flavored with Anise. I is very good and very addicting.!!!LOL. Tuaca is kind of a caramel flavored liquor, even more addicting than Sambuca.
