The drink is served in a brandy glass and is centered on the anise-flavored liqueur Sambuca, accompanied by a unique garnish of three coffee beans, symbolizing health, happiness, and prosperity. The combination of the sweet, aromatic Sambuca with the rich, roasted notes from the coffee creates a harmonious and intriguing flavor profile, making it a favored choice for an after-dinner digestif or a social sipper among those who appreciate licorice-like flavors with a hint of coffee.
