Just like true love, this amorous libation is a co-mingling of sweet, effervescent, and tart, with a touch of lacto-fermented flavors to titillate your senses.

What's even better is that it is blended with Italian prosecco, which is just as sexy as French champagne, but at half the cost. And taking the time and effort to make this unique, hand-crafted cocktail for your true love is priceless.. Salut!
