The base of the drink is comprised of absinthe, known for its herbal and often licorice-like taste, which provides a strong flavor profile. This is balanced with the sweetness of lemonade, creating a contrasting palate of sharp and refreshing notes. Additionally, the inclusion of WKD Red and multiple servings of WKD Blue introduces a fruity and slightly carbonated dimension that results in a colorful and whimsical presentation.
