New Years is one of our favorite times of the year. Is there a better excuse to throw a great party?!
A signature cocktail is one easy way to make any occasion a little more festive and this year we will be ringing in the New Year with a locally inspired favorite – the Sparking Charleston Cosmopolitan.
