The flavorful blend combines the smooth and creamy notes of Bailey's with the tropical sweetness of coconut rum, resulting in a rich tapestry of tastes. Vodka offers a clean, strong base, while whiskey introduces a layer of complexity with its deep, oak-infused undertones. The addition of milk softens the mix and contributes to a velvety texture, while Aftershock (Red), a spicy cinnamon liqueur, gives the drink an unexpected kick. To round out the mix, Pimm's No. 1 contributes a fruit and spice herbal note, making Call An Ambulance a unique and indulgent cocktail experience that's both bold and adventurous.
