It is typically served in a shot glass and presented with a dramatic flair, as the sambuca is set ablaze atop a specially prepared orange slice, which sits over the glass. As the flame heats the sambuca, it trickles into the glass, creating a potent and exhilarating mixture that is sure to ignite the senses. The unique presentation, along with the strong herbal and citrus notes, makes the Russian Roulette a memorable choice for those seeking adventure in their drinking experience.
