Celebrate Your Emmy Faves (+ Mourn the Losses) with Cocktails Made with Truly Spiked + Sparkling Mixes!


The Emmys last night were surprising and fun. I love the array of winners– most were so well-earned and well-deserved. Somehow this post didn’t go live yesterday so I  am making sure that you see it for this week– since it already seems to be off to an interesting start.
If you have a favorite cocktail that could incorporate a Truly Spiked and Sparkling mixer, post a comment (way down at the very very bottom of the page)  on this blog and tell me which one you want to use and what the name of the cocktail is!
