Cuarenta y tres

Cuarenta y tres (43) licor.
This is a vanilla (among other) flavored liqueur from Spain.
Has anyone else tried this? I'm not really an imbiber as my friends know, but we went to a tapas restaurant tonight. At the end of the meal Kelly let slip to the waitress that it was my birthday, so she brought me a shot of this gratis

I shared it around the table, but, damn, this stuff is really good. I may have to spring for a bottle of this.

Cuarenta y Tres

Cuarenta is a sweet liqueur made in the Cartagena of eastern Spain, and based on a recipe that supposedly dates from classical times, when the Phoenicians founded Carthage, in North Africa. Its name is Spanish for "forty-three". It has the alternative name in English speaking markets of Licor 43, and is so named because that is the number of herbs and spices it contains. Its strength is 31% ABV.



Cuarenta is concocted from a brandy base, with infusions of the various aromatizers, but has a noticeably predominant flavor of vanilla, which rather torpedoes the Carthaginian theory since vanilla was only discovered in the 16th century by Spanish explorers in Mexico. Not much seen outside its region of production, it is nonetheless held in high regard locally.
