Phyllo Creations with Cocktails & Mocktails: Six Pairings We Can’t Wait to Try

If your day-to-day has recently changed, we feel you. We’re spending more time at home, more time in the kitchen, and more time doing dishes. It’s enough to make anyone fall into a recipe rut. So, what’s got us excited about cooking again? Adding a side of tasty beverages. Our cocktail and phyllo combos can transport you and your taste buds far from home. And when you just want to be refreshed, our alcohol-free mocktail ideas will help you stay hydrated. Let’s dive in.


With a Spirited Kick
