Licor 43 is a sweet Spanish liqueur with a secret recipe dating back to 209 BC. Made of 43 different ingredients (hence the name), it has a sweet citrus flavor with vanilla and warm spice that’s supposed to be reminiscent of a “Spanish summer.” It can be served neat or on the rocks as an aperitif or as an ingredient in cocktails.
Since it has such a unique combination of ingredients, there’s nothing else that’s quite like Licor 43. Depending on the other ingredients in a cocktail, different flavors of Licor 43 can shine through, adding extra depth, acidity, sweetness, and spice to your drink. At around $25-$30 a bottle, we highly recommend adding a bottle to your bar and trying it out!
