2018 is right around the corner what will you serve at your holiday a gathering that will knock them into new year with a bang? Hmmm
Champagne of course! My choice is this year is Taittinger ,a genuine French Champagne worth every penny.
But before the big toast how about some cocktails with a new twist ?Instead of your average sugary cocktail there are some mixers alternatives that cut sugar but not taste or the buzz.
I was invited to get an early preview of some great drink ideas with Twinings new flavored teas Buttermint, Lemon Delight and Berry Fusion from Mixologist Scoop Stone. Stone worked on revamping these two drinks just in time for the holidays.BTW did you know Twinings is the tea of Royal Highness of England? Every package has Her Majesty’s seal. Ok to drinking like a Queen !
