One The Rocks: Ginger Sparkler

Melissa  |  February 10

It’s been quite a week! I have a lot of reason to celebrate during the next couple of days…I just got engaged during my recent vacation to SF with the beau. Since we’ll be popping bottles left and right with friends and family this weekend, I like to always put a little spin on a glass of yummy champagne. Now, while I would never add fixins to a fine glass of sparkling wine, this cocktail is absolutely delicious when you have an “affordable” (aka cheap) bottle that needs a little umph. Let the celebration begin! Cheers.

Ingredients:

~Champagne or sparkling wine (I fancy Prosecco for this particular drink)

~1 thin sliver of peeled, raw ginger

~Raw sugar (to taste)

~Small splash of ginger beer (buy the good stuff…trust me)

*In a flat-surfaced cup or martini shaker, muddle ginger with raw sugar and add a splash of ginger beer. Mix either by swirling glass around or with spoon and poor into a champagne glass. Fill with champagne and enjoy!

-XOXO Melissa
