Enjoy the red carpet treatment from the comfort of your own home. This Red Carpet cocktail lives up to its name with spectacular crimson color and delicious flavor. The sugared rim makes this a dazzling Red Carpet experience. The sugared rim also adds a bit of sweetness to the cherry and light vanilla flavor.

The color instantly made me think of red carpet worthy events such as The Oscars, Emmys and Grammys. But it’s also ideal for Valentine’s Day and Christmas.
