Popular in France, Spain, and Italy, anisette is a liquor made from anise seed and licorice root. Its black licorice flavor is similar to that of absinthe, but is usually sweeter, depending on sugar content. You can enjoy anisette by putting it in cold water (called a palomita in Spain), which creates a milky look. In Italy, people like to add three coffee beans to clear Sambuca, which represent health, happiness, and prosperity. Sounds like something we could all use about now.
