“Once the champagne and sorbet blend, Twinkling Tinsel becomes a lemony slice of heaven. It’s cool and slightly tart with balanced, succulent sweetness and is a beautiful celebratory cocktail for the light hearted, care free soul. After all, that is what the holidays are all about; lightening our spirit and enjoying those care free moments with family and friends.”
