This cocktail is a Mr. Rain’s Fun House Signature Cocktail with Megan Deschaine in the video. This will be one of Megan’s last videos for us. As she will be moving to South Carolina. We crammed in several videos with her before she left. So you have those to look forward to.
This cocktail is a Cobbler Style cocktail with fruit forward taste from the Grigano Rosso, the Fernet Lazzeroni adds verbacious bitterness a little to the fruit forward taste, while the fresh Tamarind adds an earthy tone to this Signature Cocktail. Basically a really good cocktail, especially if you like a good red wine.
