Dave's Special (Adult)

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by AcadiaTwo

My Dad created this very "Special" alcoholic beverage that everyone in our family just loves! It's made with Wink or generic Grapefruit Soda, OJ, Imperial whiskey and maraschino cherry juice over ice. You could frappe the drink if you want. He also serves them in brandy sniffer glasses. *Note: Cooking time is None.

This is absolutely delicious! It also looks stunning, like a beautiful sunset. Also I just admitted the alcohol and it was a delicious non-alcoholic drink! I will be making these again and again.
