OPAL NERA SAMBUCA
Now’s the right time to share the dark secret of Opal Nera Sambuca. Legend has it that in the early Middle Ages an Italian noblewoman gave her fiancé a black opal to take with him during his journeys at sea. Shortly before they were due to be married, news was received that her lover’s ship had been lost, with all hands drowned.
For years the noblewoman mourned the loss of her lover until one day a strange man from a far-off land appeared bearing a special gift. It was a bottle of liqueur from a distant country. This liqueur was unlike any she had ever seen before. It was not transparent, as was the tradition, but raven black.
The taste was exquisite, she drank the rich tasting drink, but before she could finish her glass, there at the bottom, veiled in the liqueur’s rich dark hue, was the black opal she had given her fiancé so many years before.
The stranger from afar was never seen again, but the story spread across the oceans and it was not long before the black opal liqueur became known throughout the world as a drink of mystique and perfection.
Best way to drink it is on the rocks. Simply pour 60mL of Opal Nera Sambuca into a tumbler, add ice squeeze the juice from a lemon wedge. Mysteriously delicious!
MOUNT GAY RUM
Mount Gay Black Barrel Black ‘N’ Stormy
A Halloween twist on the Black and Stormy (a classic rum and ginger beer) drink could be filling a hollow pumpkin with the drink and have Floating round ice cubes made with lychee syrup and lychees stuffed with brandied cherries, to give it an uncanny resemblance to eyeballs.
