Five Aces

The Five Aces cocktail blends an intriguing combination of flavors: almond, a hint of apricot and sour apple. This is one shot that deserves to be sipped rather than tipped.

This drink is a nice choice anytime you feel like having a shot that actually tastes good. It’s not quite sweet enough to be thought of as a candy drink, and yet it’s definitely sweet and fruity. Maybe it’s just the name, but this one seems great for sipping while you play a game of chance.
