Strega (Liquore Strega) is an Italian liqueur that has been produced in Benevento, Italy since 1860. The recipe is a mix of 70 herbs and spices which include Samnite mint, Ceylon cinnamon, Florentine iris, Italian Apennine juniper, fennel, and saffron. The saffron is the key to Strega's signature yellow color and the mint and juniper are two of the most pronounced flavors within the herbal mixture. Strega is aged in ash barrels to allow the various flavors and aromas to blend.Strega is considered a digestif to be imbibed after a meal and is commonly served straight or on the rocks. It can also be used in a variety of cocktails.
