What does it look like?
Borrowing a cliche, I’d suggest this one looks like a ray of sunshine – but being more helpful to you, it is a drink that ebbs and flows between light yellow to deep golden.
It is interesting to see a few of the Monday range like the Dram Sour also having this colour gradient through their drinks – just like any cocktail with the same ingredients would!
