It’s getting warmer outside! For me that means more sparkling wine and one of my favorite warm weather wines Rose! I’ve created two refreshing springsations that are a great way to start any evening or celebration!Fire up the BBQ, sit back, relax and dream of summer. Enjoy with Grilled Salmon, Goat Cheese and Beet Salad or BBQ Chicken with Cherry Chipolte Sauce!
To 1 shaker filled with crushed ice add- 1/2 oz Orange Vodka, 1/2 oz Cointreau Liquor, 2 dashes of Fee Brothers Rhubarb Bitters. Stir and strain into martini glass. Fill with chilled Sparkling Rose. I like Gruet Rose but you can use any dry fruity sparkling rose! Garnish with orange slice and edible flowers petal.
Sparkling Spring-Get Your Mojo On-Ito
To 1 shaker filled with ice add 1/4 oz Roses Lime Juice, 1/2 oz Limoncello , 2 dashes Fee Brothers mint bitters. Strain into martini glass, add sugar cube and fill with dry sparkling wine. I like Cristalino Cava but your favorite dry brut sparkling will work. Garnish with slice of lime and a fresh basil leaf.
