Everything is more festive when you add bubbles. That is equally true when talking about cocktails. There are some really fun concoctions out there, but adding a little bubbly is a special treat that makes any celebration more exciting. Try out these delicious recipes crafted by Master Sommelier and Master of Wine (There are only four people in the world that hold both titles!), Doug Frost:
5 oz. Noboleis Noblevescent
1 oz. Buffalo Trace Bourbon
7 dashes Angostura and Peychaud bitters
Build in a fluted glass.
3 oz. Les Bourgeois Vineyards Brut
¼ oz. Ginger syrup
¼ oz. Cream sherry
¾ oz. Lime juice
½ oz. Ron Zacapa
Combine and shake all ingredients except Brut. Pour over ice into a copper mug and top with Brut. Garnish with dried pineapple and grated fresh nutmeg.
