It is universally true that Italy is the country of good food, but also of good drinking. In fact, Italy can boast a vast production of liqueurs that is famous all over the world. The tradition of liquor in Italy has deep roots that go back to the Middle-Age, when mixtures of herbs, fruit, alcohol and sugar were used as medicines. 


The habits of liquor

There is not precise rule about the tasting of the liquor, it can be drunk in various times of the day, when you feel like it. The differences in consumption channels are really minimal but perhaps for the affable character and the desire to share most Italian liquor drinkers prefer to drink a glass in their own home. However, consumption is increasingly linked to weekend and conviviality, therefore there are mainly two times when Italians drink liquor: as an aperitif to stimulate the appetite; as a digestive, to help digest particularly difficult lunches or dinners; or as ammazzacaffè, a drink after coffe, that erase the taste of coffee from the mouth.
There is another habit in Italy, that of the correct coffee that is based on the union of espresso and a small amount of liqueur. For this particular way of tasting is famous the anisette which has a green anise base, can be drunk smooth or with a roasted coffee bean inside the glass. 


«I would like a correct coffe with a cognac, more cognac than coffee… indeed, while you are at, just bring me a cup of cognac and we won’t talk about it anymore.»
