We used Coole Swan Irish Cream because we wanted a more white color without the impact of the darker spirit taking over. Red Stag Black Cherry infused Whiskey is the core component to this build and it does not domina...

Deep Eddy Lemon Vodka, a flavorful citrus vodka that you can use for things that call for citrus vodka. It does have a little less sweet/sour than one would think from the color and all.
