Cocktail ideas and Flavour Pearls…

Tis the season for a cocktail…..or two and Flavour Pearls

 

It really is! Actually any time is a good time for something delicious in a fancy glass with friends…..

We made the Atlantic cocktail for our photo shoot because it is a clear cocktail and we wanted you to see our lovely Pearls but hey, make what you love…a surprising burst of flavour would be quite cool if you weren’t expecting it!

We put the Pearls into our glasses then added our mix. You will note the pink hue on the centre glass, that is the strawberry liquid that surrounds our Pearls. If you want to keep your cocktails pure until you burst the Pearls in your mouth just drain them before you add them in!

From front to back in the shot we have used Tangerine, Strawberry & Cherry Flavour Pearls. We have other great flavours available – Apple (fresh & clean),  Lemon & Black Pepper (go go tequila!!!), Salted Caramel, Honey, Blackcurrant & Blue Curacao. Hey even Balsamic & White Balsamic for the Bloody Mary lovers out there.

Flavour Pearls all non alcoholic so perfect to whip up a fancy cocktail for the designated driver too!
