Thirsty Thursday: Sparkling Cherry and Spice
The Cocktail Guru’s classy glass
The holidays are a time for sophisticated soirées and partays. So of course, you don’t want to be caught sucking down a brewski in your fancy dress and uh-mazing updo. To class things up a bit, try this sweet sippable treat by Jonathan Pogash, aka The Cocktail Guru!
Made with limited edition Grand Marnier Cherry, Chandon Rosé sparkling wine, ginger, and lime juice, the drink is sweet with just a little bit of spice. Serve it chilled in a champagne flute and garnish with candied ginger and a lime peel for the ultimate party drink. Pop in some cherries at the bottom for an extra flair and your friends will totally forget that last Sunday you were watching football in your boyfriend’s nacho-stained sweatpants!
