Cocktail Colin says:

4/5

Cheeky Vimto combines strong vodka, the rich fruitiness of port, and the quirky sweetness of WKD Blue for a playful, purple potion that is uniquely British. This fun, fruity concoction is joyfully sweet, perfect for those who love their cocktails vibrant and less spirit-forward.
