What a week! I came home from Italy to two days of tornadoes through Alabama (luckily we are safe and unharmed). It’s almost May and time to welcome new blooms and fresh sunshine with refreshing seasonal cocktails that capture the essence of Spring in every sip. This Berry Sparkle Cocktail is a perfect way to make a toast to spring (and good weather ahead). It’s ideal for Mother’s Day, showers and even graduation parties. Start with your favorite berries and freshly chopped mint. Use Licor 43 and champagne or Prosecco to top it off. Cheers 🙂
