Shimmer & Shine with Viniq Cocktails!

Viniq is America’s first shimmery liqueur. This Moscato Vodka combination was fun and flirty for a “novelty” night. I had the girls over and we enjoyed these two shimmery cocktails for summer, which were sweet and satisfying with some dark chocolates, chocolate covered raisins, and more.

This is a sweet liqueur, and certainly something mixable. Would I drink this on it’s own, not so much, but mix it with something and I think that those who enjoy moscato and moscato cocktails, this one is right on the money.

There is the purple shimmery Viniq as well as the ruby. These cocktails call for the Ruby, however both types of Viniq can be enjoyed.
