Barbed Wire


Barbed Wire is a classic cocktail, which is cherished for its sophisticated flavours.  It is one of the popular Vodka cocktails, which is known to give an electrifying after taste with just a few sips. To get the right blend of sweet and sour, the base spirit Vodka is mixed with sweet Vermouth and well-aged Sherry. Sherry is known to add a unique golden brown colour to this mix.
