Cocktail Colin says:

4/5

The Fat Tire entices with its vibrant blend of tropical citrus from orange and pineapple juices, which mesh beautifully with the warmth and complexity of Jamaican rum and the herbal bitterness of Amaro. This combination creates a compelling, well-balanced cocktail that dances between sweet, tart, and bitter notes, making it an excellent choice for those who savor depth and a touch of exotic intrigue in their glass.
