What’s on your agenda this weekend? After last week’s delectable delight that I shared with you, I thought maybe it would be nice to have something a little lighter on this week’s cocktail menu. I thought this light yellow cocktail, the Ginger Sparkler, would fit the bill, containing only 3 semi-not-so indulgent ingredients! Cheers!
- 2 teaspoons finely grated peeled fresh ginger
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 bottle (750 ml) dry sparkling wine, such as Cava, Prosecco, or Champagne
- Set a fine-mesh sieve over a small bowl; set aside. In a small saucepan, boil ginger, sugar, and 1/4 cup water until syrupy, about 2 minutes. Pour through sieve into bowl, discarding solids. (To store syrup, refrigerate in an airtight container, up to 1 week.)
- Pour 1 tablespoon syrup into each of 8 tall glasses. Top with sparkling wine, and gently stir.
