Aniseed liqueur, also known as absinthe, is a strong and aromatic spirit made from anise and other herbs. Its distinct licorice flavor adds depth to the cocktail and balances out the sweet and tangy notes from the orange juice and lemonade. The addition of a dash of blackcurrant cordial gives the Blitzo a vibrant purple color and a touch of fruity sweetness. This cocktail is perfect for those looking for a complex and flavorful drink, with a balanced mix of sweet, tangy, and herbal flavors. It is best enjoyed on a hot summer day or as a refreshing aperitif before a meal.
