Coca-Cola strengthened their relationship with bartenders yesterday as they launched a brand new line of Coca-Cola beverages starting in Western Europe called “Coca-Cola Signature Mixers”.

No 2. Spicy- wonderful when paired with Scotch Whisky or Tequila Reposado & Anejo. No 3. Herbal Notes- excellent with Cognac and Scotch Whisky. Lastly, No 4.
