Move those hips and get ready for some culture for this week's episode of A Sip With Sparkle: “Cinco de Mayo.” Special guests Nicole and Dustin from Cantina del Centro join Sparkle LIVE on Monday, May 3rd @ 7:00 PM. The timing of this episode couldn’t be more perfect as it prepares us with fun cocktails for the historical celebration held globally on May 5th. Cinco de Mayo is a historical landmark of triumph, we plan on commemorating it by pushing through the challenges of Covid 19, and uniting people through drinks and laughs. We’re excited to see what this episode brings to the table!
