Pop the bubbly and start the countdown because 2013 is about to come to a close. If you’re looking for a festive last minute drink to serve at your New Year’s Eve party, look no further. Spicy ginger beer mixed with sweet sparkling Prosecco is a light and refreshing flavor match made in heaven. And because New Years Eve is the fanciest of all holidays, we topped our cocktails with cotton candy, edible gold star sprinkles, and ground ginger.
Guests can choose to snack on their ginger cotton candy garnish or swirl it into their drinks for added sweetness. Now let’s all raise our Ginger & Prosecco filled glasses to a fun and festive New Year Eve. Cheers! XO, Leah
