"I only drink Prosecco on two occasions, when it's my birthday and when it's not."

I grew up in a family obsessed with Christmas, well actually, it was just my mother. ☺️ Either way growing up in a house that looked just like Santa’s North Pole ❄️has forever engrained the festive spirit in me.

Every Christmas my fam comes together for some holiday cheer. This year I promised to deliver a tasty cocktail that everyone will fancy. This creation could certainly be it! A delicious combination of naughty & nice with sweetness & spice. 😚 (I'm so cheesy!) 

If you're hosting a party or attending one, wow your friends with this low calorie bubbly concoction; hints of cranberries, oranges and cinnamon. It'll be hard to pass up, and did I mention it's super easy to make.
