What are some simple cocktails you can make with sparkling wine?
There are many cocktails to be made with sparkling wine as the base, including the bellini, mimosa and poinsettia. The bellini, a popular summer drink that originated in Italy, is made from a mixture of 7 ounces of sparkling wine and an ounce of peach schnapps. A basic mimosa is made of half a flute glass of chilled sparkling wine topped off with chilled orange juice stirred gently. The poinsettia is made of 4 ounces sparkling wine and ounce of cranberry juice served ice-cold in chilled drinking glasses. With its festive colouring, it makes for a great holiday drink.
