As all eyes were on Venice this weekend for the George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin nuptials, much has been said about dresses, venues, and guests with little mention of one of our favorite topics – cocktails. We can only imagine that Matt Damon, Bill Murray, Emily Blunt, and Bono celebrated their newly married friends in true Italian style, selecting the top-selling spirit in Italy, and the one that started it all, Molinari Sambuca Extra.

Perhaps George and Amal’s guests enjoyed Molinari Sambuca Extra traditionally:

Molinari Sambuca Extra con la Mosca

Served neat with three coffee beans floating on the surface representing health, happiness, and prosperity

Molinari Caffè Corretto (Italy’s most popular method of consuming Sambuca)

1. Correct the espresso with a teaspoon of Molinari Extra
2. Enjoy your coffee
3. After drinking Caffè Corretto, pour the rest of the Molinari Extra into the empty cup, swirl to rinse (resintin) and enjoy!


Or, perhaps a signature cocktail was created to commemorate the occasion:
