Surprisingly I enjoyed this. I was just trying to find a way to get rid of the Golden Cider as I’m really not a fan of it, but this turned out well.

As I don’t drink really this was purely an experiment with the end goal of getting a pink hued cocktail for a special night. I could really smell and taste the alcohol, but if you love cocktails this may be right up your alley.
