FESTIVE COCKTAILS

Festive parties, bar meets, and work do’s are in full swing. What better way to let the good times roll than with some festive cocktails mixed especially (pun intended) for the party season?

If you prefer your drink shaken not stirred, like a little fizz or appreciate all of the above, one of the quick and easy Cîroc and Chandon-based recipes below will be right up your street:
