Very Good - Very Good +

Purchased from: PortoFino restaurant, in Carmel, CA

There was something extra transporting about sipping a licorice*-laced hot chocolate in a cottage near the sea. Actually, PortoFino (translation: beautiful door) restaurant was a great restaurant disguised as a cottage, in true Carmel style. Wonderful hot soup + this drink was enough to take the chill off a cool, breezy afternoon.

*Sambuca is an Italian anise-flavored liqueur
