4 Fun Sparkling NYE Cocktails

December 29, 2017 / Foodie, Main Menu

New Year’s Eve is the time to say goodbye to a year passing and welcoming new adventures in the new year to come. And many of us manage to look for something, whether it is a new outfit, a new resolution, a drinks/cocktails. Yes, there are many that fall into all of the categories and some that I did not mention, but one in particular is found all over the place. Drinks and Cocktails. Google it and you will find many out there.

I too have looked and did actually have a favorite from one of the ones I am going to mention to you. I kind of tried it early. It was one of the refreshing drinks we had for Christmas. There are 4 Fun Sparkling NYE Cocktails that I want to introduce to you and they are:
