From mimosas to Bellinis to the Aperol spritz, we’re big fans of the fizz in our drinks. Refreshing, effervescent and a breeze to make, take a departure from your usual mimosa this weekend for these sparkling wine cocktails perfect for the transition to fall!
- 1 oz CH Vodka
- ¾ oz Simple Syrup
- ¾ oz Lime Juice
- Gouguenheim Sparkling Rosé
Strawberries and sparkling rosé. Name a better duo…we’ll wait. Perfect for rosé and cosmo drinkers alike, plus the rest of us who aren’t willing to give up those summer vibes just yet.
Dice 5-6 strawberries and combine in 4 oz of simple syrup. Smash the strawberries with the back of a spoon and let them rest in the syrup until liquid begins to take on color and flavor of strawberries (~30min). After the flavor has been extracted into the syrup, strain the remaining strawberries from the newly flavored syrup (only ¾ oz). Juice one lime and set aside until you’re ready to compose the cocktail. Combine all ingredients in your shaker. Add a few ice cubes and shake. Strain into a white wine glass or coupe. Top with about 3 oz of Gouguenheim sparkling rosé and garnish with a small strawberry.
- 1 oz Hendricks Gin
- ¾ oz Lemon Juice
- ¾ oz Simple Syrup
- Jean Louis Cuvée Brut
Play up the unique Hendricks botanicals with refreshing slices of crisp cucumber!
Cut 2 slices of cucumber and add to your cocktail shaker. Juice 1 lemon, and combine with gin and simple syrup into your cocktail shaker. Lightly muddle the cucumber with a wooden spoon or muddler. Add ice and shake until cold. Strain into a white wine glass or coupe. Top with about 3 oz of Jean Louis Cuvée Brut and garnish with a cucumber wheel or peel.
Grapefruit Aperol Spritz
- 1 oz Aperol
- 2 oz Grapefruit LaCroix
- 2 oz Ca’ Furlan Prosecco
A simple riff on the classic Aperol Spritz, this version with grapefruit LaCroix adds balance to the Aperol and prosecco for a slightly acidic and bittersweet spritz that’s not too rich. Highly crushable.
Combine Aperol, LaCroix and prosecco into a Collins glass. Mix gently as not to disturb the carbonation. Gently add ice until covered. Express one orange twist and enjoy!
