4/5

Saxy Blue Lips surprises with its unconventional blend of Sambuca and Tropical Sourz, presenting a strong, licorice-sweet base complemented by fizzy lemon-lime soda. While intriguing, this cocktail might not satisfy traditional palates, demanding an adventurous spirit to truly appreciate its bold, sharp contrasts.
