Originating from the Caribbean, this cocktail is a blend of coconut rum, brandy, and vodka, creating a smooth and strong base. The addition of blackcurrant cordial gives it a sweet and fruity note, while the grenadine adds a touch of tartness. The nutmeg adds a warm and spicy undertone, balancing out the flavors of the other ingredients. A splash of both Guinness and lager gives this cocktail a rich and creamy texture, making it a decadent and indulgent drink. The Death Drink is not for the faint of heart, but for those who enjoy a boozy concoction with a complex and bold flavor profile.
