It doesn’t have to be Champagne…. 5 seriously cool alternatives to ring in the New Year during a heat wave.

Blog full 5 alternatives

Because(as they say) a change is as good as a holiday we're bringing you some cool alternatives to the traditional New Years fizz: You want something refreshing - and perhaps with a little extra hydration in the form of a mixer so you don’t over-do it. Try the Quinquina cocktail: Shake 4 parts quinquina, 1 part gin & 1 part Cointreau, crush in 2 fresh orange segments - pour over ice & top with sparkling water. Refreshing. Delicious. Easy drinking.
