Reviews for Poinsettia
"We made this to serve with appetizers for the first stop of a progressive Christmas party. It was delicious...however for the second batch we made with Asti Spumante and it was 10 stars!!! Next time we will freeze some cranberries to put in the flute before serving with perhaps a slice of orange!"
