The sweetness and rich fruitiness come from the apricot brandy, creating a balance between the sharp citrus and the warmth of the brandy. It's typically served in a cocktail glass to showcase its elegant simplicity, and a sprig of mint adds a touch of freshness to the drink's presentation. With its bold flavors, the Katinka offers a delightful blend that is fruit-forward with a zesty kick.
