For the Slippery Red Karpet, since it's served in a shot glass, garnish options are limited but impactful. A simple, elegant touch is placing a small, fresh cranberry on a cocktail pin laid across the top of the glass. Alternatively, a thin orange peel twist or a small mint leaf can add visual appeal and a hint of complementary aroma.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

What is the best way to serve the Slippery Red Karpet?

The Slippery Red Karpet is best served cold in a shot glass. It should be stirred gently but thoroughly before serving to ensure the flavors are well blended. Serving this cocktail chilled enhances its smooth texture and rich flavors, making it a delightful shot for various occasions.
