Good Booze – Tasty and a Great Price
Prosecco is on fire in the booze world. This one from Costco is a great example of “why.” It’s an Italian sparkler that will please just about anyone looking for a sipping bubbly. Great flavors. Low crispness. More than middle dry. That means some fruit and not the dry, mineral style. This is great with many foods such as spicy chicken. At this price pop and pour. Enjoy it as an afternoon treat. Just remember that French True Bone Dry Brut people won’t admit to enjoying it. Too bad for them.
