The reformatting of desserts as seen with this cocktail could also be tied to social media foodie culture; as consumers become delighted by unexpected flavor infusions and formats, they seek out ways to join in with followers to share their experience. What's best, the raspberry red wine slushy with chocolate whipped cream can be made at home, which helps enhance approachability.
