1/2 oz Cointreau or triple sec
3 oz cranberry juice
Chill all three ingredients. Pour Cointreau and cranberry juice into flute, mix and then top with Champagne. Garnish with pomegranate seeds or orange twists if desired.
2 tablespoons vodka or limoncello
Sgroppino - Italian Lemon Cocktail
2 melon ball size scoops lemon sorbet (for a creamier cocktail use lemon gelato)
Mint sprigs or lemon twists for garnish
Pour vodka or limoncello into flute and then sorbet, top with prosecco and garnish, enjoy!
1/2 oz Chambord or Raspberry liqueur
Pour Chambord in flute, top with Champagne
1 1/2 oz white rum
Splash fresh lime juice (key lime is best)
8-10 mint leaves
1 teaspoon sugar or 1/2 oz simple syrup
1 lime wedge
Muddle mint leaves, sugar, lime wedge and splash of lime juice in a large glass until mint leaves are crushed. Fill glass to the top with ice, pour rum over ice and finish with Champagne. Garnish with mint sprig. This is drier than a traditional mojito therefore you can add more sugar for a sweeter flavor.
