The blend of orange liqueur, vodka, and Galliano provides a smooth, versatile foundation that complements the sweet depth brought by Cointreau and the herbaceous notes from DOM Benedictine. The dominant fresh sensation comes from the generous amounts of pineapple and orange juices, creating a refreshing and fruity experience that resonates with the warmth and vibrancy of summertime. Traditionally served in a cocktail glass, this drink rounds out its sunny disposition with a cool and inviting presentation.
