‘Cool’ drinks with Flavour Pearls…

Do you want to add a bit of ‘wow’ to your next pre-dinner or afternoon drinks….well I think this may just do it!!!

 

This is one of my favourite ‘sunny day drinks’….Gin & Tonic. Add in some Tangerine Flavour Pearls and you have yourself a refreshing burst of flavour that you just can’t get from a wedge of lime. Make sure you pick up some ‘slurpee straws’ with the little spoon end from your local fast food place. It makes for much easier ‘pearl popping’.

A bit of fun too…..sip ‘ n ‘ scoop 🙂 Read more
