Wonderfully refreshing and balanced.
One of the best and most popular drinks to come out of the 1980s.
Rum-laced, very fruity, and toned by vermouth and generous dashed of bitters. If you like a French Martini you'll also like this.
As Dick Bradsell once said to me, It may make you wobble, but it won't make you fall down. Dick named this cocktail after the 1970s' Weebles children's

A delicately fruity bittersweet sweet 'n' sour aperitivo.
A blackberry and coconut flavoured Daiquiri.

Not sure what a fruity bourbon drink has to do with the manifestation of Christ.
Rich, long, berry drink.
