The Sparkling Rose
This is a refreshing sparkling wine cocktail. I prefer a Brut Rosé for the pretty pink color and flavor, though any sparkling wine will do. For a sweeter cocktail, add some simple syrup. If the tart Montmorency cherries are hard to find, then use dried cranberries or fresh strawberries or raspberries.
- 2 tart Montmorency cherries diced
- 1/4 tsp rose water
- 1 tsp Grand Marnier
- 4 ounces Sparkling Wine preferably a Brut Rosé
- Twist of orange peel
- 1-2 tsp simple syrup (optional)
- In a champagne glass, add the diced cherries then pour in the rose water, Grand Marnier and simple syrup if using. Slowly pour in the sparkling wine, being careful not to overflow the glass. The dried fruit will make it bubble more than usual. Top with an orange peel twist. Enjoy!
