Cocktail Colin says:

4/5

The Tennis Cup is a bright, refreshing blend where the citrus notes of orange and triple sec playfully enhance the herbal depth of Dubonnet and the crisp bite of gin. The innovative mix of ginger ale and cola adds a fizz that balances the bitters, making it an invigorating sipper perfect for a sunny day courtside.
