Combining the robust spirits of vodka, white rum, and gin with the sweet and tart flavors of blackcurrant cordial, it delivers a strong flavor profile that is both invigorating and bold. The addition of orange liqueur provides a citrusy counterpoint, while a top-off of cider introduces a bubbly and slightly fermented component that rounds out the drink. It's typically garnished with citrus slices to add visual appeal and a touch of extra fruitiness. This beverage is known for its vibrant taste and considerable strength, making it a popular choice for group gatherings looking to kickstart their evening.
