Notes
The romantic color is a beautiful pale rose, similar to an English rose. The aroma is outstanding, picking up the best scents of the ingredients. The balance between the Drambuie and the Champagne is echoed by the interplay of the bitters/Campari and the sugar, producing a very mature, elegant flavor.
