Ideas for French-Inspired Sparkling Cocktails for the Spring

'Tis the season for sparkling cocktails with a hint of spirits and a healthy fruit for inspiration and color. Inspired in France and made in southern California, the Diabolo healthy sparkling drinks are the creation of frenchman Michel Langlais. While traveling in the US, he noticed that one of his favorite sparkling drinks was not available here. The French know a few things about bubbles, so Monsieur Langlais set about creating a version of the drink he knew would be delicious over ice alone, and also a successful cocktail base when mixed with spirits. The drinks are 100% natural and made with flavors such as tangerine, blueberry lemon, mint lemon and dragon fruit. Each sparkling can of happiness is not just a flavored sparkling water, but a full-bodied fruit beverage with the perfect base for a cocktail or just to drink alone with ice.
