Cocktail Colin says:

4/5

The Red Devil is a daring concoction where the bold, licorice notes of aniseed liqueur clash enchantingly with the complex botanicals of gin, offering a sip that's both robust and layered. The splash of grenadine not only sweetens the deal but also paints the drink in a devilishly appealing red, making it as much a feast for the eyes as it is for the palate.
