Cocktail Colin says:

5/5

The Rudolph’s Red Nose cocktail is a delightful winter warmer, marrying the rich, fruity tones of a classic sangria with the comforting spiciness of mulled wine. The robust red wine base enhanced with the zesty sweetness of orange juice and triple sec, coupled with the tartness of cranberry, creates a complex yet harmonious blend. Cinnamon adds a festive spice while the unexpected hint of almond extract rounds it off with a slightly nutty finish, making for a delectable holiday treat.
