New York, NY, March 22, 2017 (Newswire.com) - Today’s hottest cocktail trend gives new meaning to the phrase “wine and spirits,” as leading mixologists across the nation marry the two for a refreshing blend of “wine cocktails” to usher in the spring and summer seasons.
“Traditionally wine and spirits have been an either/or choice for consumers and bartenders alike,” notes Jim Amstutz, national sales director for Global Spirits USA. “Now, however, we’re seeing a global trend at bars and restaurants combining spirits and a variety of wines in some exciting new cocktails.”
