FAQ's

ALCOHOL_CONTENT_COMPARISON

How does the alcohol content in Spark compare to that of a standard cocktail?

The Spark cocktail has an alcohol content of 10.56%, which is slightly lower than the average cocktail, which typically ranges from 12% to 40% alcohol by volume (ABV) depending on the type and preparation. This makes Spark a milder option, suitable for those preferring a less potent drink.

GARNISHING_TIPS

What garnishes work well with Spark?

Given the citrusy base of Spark, garnishing with a slice of orange or a lime wedge can enhance its fruity notes. A sprig of mint or a few cranberries can also add a pop of color and complement the drink's flavors.

SERVING_SUGGESTIONS

What is the best way to serve Spark?

Spark is best served cold in a highball glass to appreciate its vibrant flavors and refreshing nature. Add ice to the glass to keep it cool, especially in warmer weather or at outdoor events.

FOOD_PAIRINGS

What foods pair well with Spark?

Spark's fruity and slightly sweet profile pairs well with light appetizers, such as cheese platters, fruit skewers, or seafood dishes like shrimp cocktail. Its refreshing taste can also complement spicy foods by providing a sweet counterbalance.

INGREDIENT_SUBSTITUTIONS

Can I substitute the grain alcohol in Spark with another type of alcohol?

Yes, if grain alcohol isn't to your taste or is unavailable, you can substitute it with vodka for a smoother finish or white rum for a slightly sweeter touch. Both alternatives would maintain the overall flavor profile of the cocktail while adjusting the potency to preference.
