World Cocktail Day 2016: Recipes for Double Fri-Yay The 13th

What’s yours?

My favorite color is grey goose!

My go to drink is:

Grey Goose Soda with Lime
Grey Goose Soda with a splash of lime in a short glass (I’m short and I love short glasses too).
Bonus: Lighter on calories and guilt than most alcoholic refreshments.

…….but it is summer and Prosecco is so refreshing especially in the Arizona desert heat.

Thank you for these unique recipes from Santa Margherita Wine and Sparkling Ice that you all of us can make with just a few simple ingredients to celebrate World Cocktail Day.
