This citrusy bellini variation is easy to make and refreshing to drink, lightly tart and just a little more sophisticated than the standard peach version. Feel free to garnish with an additional scoop of lemon sorbet or a few raspberries
Grapefruit And Ginger Sparkler
Together the duo of grapefruit and ginger is hard to beat—spicy, citrusy and bright. But turn the duo into a trio by adding a little bubbly over the top, and you've got yourself a cocktail that will keep you on your toes.
Fresh Watermelon Sangria
Fresh watermelon adds delicate sweetness, and a squeeze of lime heightens the tartness of the white wine. A sprig of mint wouldn't be out of place as a garnish. Feel free to double the recipe and serve in a large pitcher.
The "broken" Negroni, or Negroni Sbagliato, starts with Campari and sweet vermouth. In place of gin, though, the Sbagliato version uses sparkling wine. It's a refreshing take on the bitter cocktail that's perfect for brunch.
Etre En Verve
This is a delicious way to enjoy luscious Lillet Blanc: topped with sparkling wine and a few dashes of grapefruit bitters.
Napa Valley Mojito
If your mom likes mojitos, consider this tart and fresh variation on the classic. Rather than using club soda to get fizzy, this drink employs a little sparkling wine, plus a handful of muddled grapes to add a fruity complexity.
