It is often served as a shot, making it perfect for lively parties and gatherings. This controversial cocktail gets its name from its bold crimson hue, which resembles the color of a newly formed embryo. It is made with a combination of vodka and grenadine, giving it a sweet and tart fruity flavor. The addition of the tangy grenadine not only gives it a unique taste but also adds depth to the drink. Just like its name, this cocktail is not to be taken lightly, as it packs a punch and is not suitable for those with a weak palate. Overall, Abortion is a unique and flavorful drink that is sure to get the party started.
