Top 10 Nuvo Drink Recipes
What is Nuvo L’esprit De Paris
Nuvo, originally Nuvo L’esprit De Paris, is an alcoholic liqueur that originated in 2007 in France’s Paris and was initially created as a drink for women with the words ‘For Her’ written on the bottle. This fortified wine is made from spring water and grains mixed with sparkling wine, giving it a very refined and subtle taste. It is gluten-free, distributed by the London Group Co. with two of its original flavors – the pink ‘Tropical Flavor’, and the yellow ‘Lemon’. The alcohol percentage (ABV) of Nuvo is 15, and it is 30-proof in the US. Interestingly, the pink version of the liqueur was endorsed by American rapper Nicki Minaj.
