What was the inspiration behind Passion Sparkle and when did you first make it?

“I made this cocktail last year, I like it because I experimented with lots of cocktails to make this perfect taste and balanced cocktail. I first made this homemade Passion Syrup for myself. If I make it with monin puree it spoils all taste in this cocktail.”

“You can use any sparkling wine, I tasted this cocktail with different types of wine but the brand doesn’t make a big difference.”
