125 West

125 West is the largest ruby in the world, and as far as this cocktail goes, the rich burgundy colour and the majesty of enjoying this aperitif really lends the impression of holding a large ruby in the palm of your hand. It’s bold, bitter, and unapologetic, and as layers of flavor slowly unfold, Red Admiral Vodka takes center stage at the core, lending a crisp, clean profile which is ideal for sipping.
