With the aniseed liqueur and orange liqueur at its core, drinkers can expect a sweet yet slightly spiced taste profile. The aniseed liqueur brings a bold, licorice-like flavor that harmonizes with the citrusy sweetness of the orange liqueur, creating a complex and aromatic experience. Topped off with lemonade, the cocktail is balanced by a fizzy and tart effervescence, making it a pleasantly invigorating choice especially in warmer climates or seasons. Served in a highball glass, Little Eli is an intriguing option for those looking to shake up their cocktail repertoire with something different from the usual fare.
