Its large volume suggests it is designed for sharing, and it is topped off with WKD Red, a brightly colored alcopop, which adds a carbonated fruit punch to the mix. Typically served in a pitcher glass, this cocktail is a festive choice for social gatherings, offering a bold and indulgent flavor experience that leans heavily on the sweeter side of the taste spectrum. The Original Delight is a vibrant and colorful option for those who enjoy a drink that is both visually appealing and rich in diverse fruity notes.
