Romana Sambuca is the best-selling sambuca in the world. Sambuca is a clear, anise-flavored liqueur native to Italy (it comes in black and red varieties as well). Much like absinthe and other anise liqueurs, it turns white and cloudy when water is added to it as a result of the ouzo effect, a complex interaction between water and the essential oil trans-anethole.
