Shimmer and shine – New Years Drinks

Spending New Year’s Eve at home, with loved ones doesn’t have to be a boring affair. Come up with a theme, dress up, play games, eat delicious food and bring in the new year with these simply decadent alcoholic, new alcoholic beverages.



Shimmer Vodka Liqueur

This is a delicious Shimmery Vodka Liqueur that is bound to get the party started. This vodka encompasses floating, edible glitter and it comes in four fun, flirty flavours. The flavours are sapphire tutti frutti (blue), jasper gummi bear (purple), ruby cinnamon (red) and emerald lemon biscuit (green). Our personal favourites are the gummi bear and cinnamon flavours.

They’re both beautiful and delicious as individual shots. Or, add them to a cocktail of your choice, for a real showstopper drink experience. Add a few jelly babies to the gummy bear variant, or some lemon skin twirls to your lemon biscuit cocktail, for an authentically, delicious, flavour explosion. This shooter (or cocktail) will welcome in the new year with all the shimmer, shine, fun and elegance, that 2022 deserves. We may not know what the new year has in store for us, but we can remain hopeful, and positive and we can do this all, while enjoying a sparkling beverage. P.S. you can also add a shot of this shimmer vodka to a glass of Sprite, or to a glass of BOS ice tea, we know, because we tried it and it’s simply sensational.  Alc Vol. 15.5%

We love that this premium beverage has just been re-launched with a new look, and easy-open cap. Now, all the ladies with manicured nails, can effortlessly open their own drinks, and continue being the glamorous, independent, glow-getters that they are. Once undressed, this delicious, chilled drink serves a premium, real grape taste, with delicious bubbles. Every sip brings the flavour to life that much more – so that you can go about living your life with flair and style. Bernini sparkling grape frizzante is available in three more-ish flavours – Classic, blush and amber. Amber is our personal favourite. Let us know what yours is.
