Around 70 ish. Enough to make you wonder why you were drinking it in the first place!!!! LOL

Sambuca will give you one of the best headaches immaginable! Thats why it is so good.

Nothing like a frickin pounding headache, accompinied by shaking an dizziness.

Life just doesn't get any better, I swear! LOL

I was thinking that sambuca was only around 40% or so. Either way it is addicting and I think that the headache can be easily solved by the wonderful H2O. But I rarely suffer from the hangover, unless I get into store bought wines that have alot of sulfites in them.

So what does everyone think would fortifing a couple of bottles of blackberry with the sambuca be a good thing to try? Or is there something else that would be better suited for blackberry?

I always have a bottle of Sambuco in my freezer. It would be interesting in wine.

I have drank my share of sambuca, I do know that if you add it to ice or water it gets milky and has a strange taste. Now it is best enjoyed on ice cream or a shot after dinner.

Did anyone end up trying this? Carrabba's makes a pretty sweet sangria with their house Montepulciano, Tuaca, and Blackberry Monin syrup. I was thinking about making a sangria-inspired wine and putting some Tuaca/blackberries in.

I love sambuca, but I would use very little. It could overpower any wine quickly. I would love to hear how it works!
