Spend Your Weekend With a Sparkling Adonis

Spend Your Weekend With a Sparkling Adonis
Contributor: Claire Lower

If you choose to sip on cocktails this weekend, it should be a slightly special one. Treat yourself to something luxurious, fun, and bubbly.

Sparkling cocktails feel extra celebratory because bubbles are basically gaseous glitter, and that glitter can be sprinkled into already existing cocktails to create a spritz version of that cocktail. This works particularly well with vermouth-heavy libations (a stronger drink like a martini or Manhattan might be weird); just add 90mL of bubbles to 60 or 90mL of something that isn’t bubbles.

My current favourite (as of last night) is the Sparkling Adonis, because it sounds very sexy and tastes like sherry. It’s a little sweet, a little almond-y, quite bubbly, and has a wine-ish ABV, so you can drink a few of them without getting too sloshed. To make a Sparkling Adonis, you will need:

  • 45mL Fino sherry
  • 30mL sweet vermouth
  • 70mL sparkling wine

Chill everything beforehand — you should be storing all of these ingredients in the fridge anyway — then pour the first two ingredients into a champagne flute, and give them a little stir. Add the sparkling wine, sip, and repeat if needed.
