It combines the clear and neutral punch of vodka with the high-proof intensity of grain alcohol, creating a sharp base. This is then contrasted with the sweet anise flavor of aniseed liqueur, offering a licorice-like complexity. The cocktail is rounded out and given a refreshing twist with the addition of lemon-lime soda, which also serves to mellow the intense alcohol flavors, making it a unique combination of tastes served in a highball glass. This drink is often served cold and provides a zesty, citrusy experience with an undertone of sweetness that pairs with the potent kick of the spirits involved.
