Who doesn't love sweet, sticky and spicy wings? Use new Woolworths flavoured sparkling fermented drink to make a thick BBQ marinade to glaze the wings are they bake. Cut the richness of the wings with a crunchy slaw with a secret dressing (it's made with Woolworths granadilla flavoured fermented sparkling drink) and toast to this tropical feast with nostalgic beer floats with a twist.
